Advisory Service for Prospective Students

What awaits me in the bachelor's degree program? How does the aptitude test work? Which master's program is right for me? If you are looking for support and answers to these questions, the advisory service for prospective students is the right place to get assistance. Information days, one-on-one consultation and HPI student mentors help students decide which bachelor's, baster's, and PhD degree programs are right for them.

Our student advisor Professor Giese answers general questions about studying at HPI and the degree programs. The study program advisors deal with subject-specific questions about the contents of the individual degree programs.

Applicants and students from abroad as well as HPI students interested in studying abroad can find important information at the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS).
