The time of the doctorate is a phase of personality development, which is almost legally connected with crises. Difficulties can arise at the beginning, during the course or during the time of graduation.
Areas in which psychological counselling is required may be, for example: Doubts about continuing the doctorate, work difficulties, examination anxiety, lack of self-esteem, problems in the social environment, problems with alcohol, drugs, online addiction, depressive moods. In case of partnership problems, couple counselling is also possible.

Note: The counselling is aimed at matriculated doctoral students at HTW Dresden and TU Dresden. Please send a short e-mail with your request to the counselling centre and refer to Elfi Hesse or Sophie Tietze as contact in the Graduate Service. Thank you very much!

Statistical consulting is an internal service of HTW Dresden which is aimed at research assistants, doctoral students and university teachers. The aim is to support academic staff in empirical questions regarding the selection of methods and tools for the collection, evaluation and processing of statistical data.

Within the framework of an initial consultation, the fundamental questions will be clarified: Which methodology will be used or is to be used? Which data already exists or which data should be collected? The offer is interesting both for persons who have already provided methods and would like to have them tested for their effectiveness and for persons who have not yet made a final decision in favour of a method. In the further course of the project, further discussions will be arranged, as required, regarding the implementation of the mathematical-statistical elements, which will address problems or questions
