Where do I find what?

In addition to a range of student services, the Hertie School has three Internet platforms to help current students navigate academic administration, courses and teaching, and career networking:

Your questions from A-Z

From “Academic Calendar” to “Working in Germany after graduation”: If you have a question the answer is almost certainly in Moodle’s A-Z directory.

Tuition, fees and payment methods

Find all information about tuition, campus fees, administrative fees and payment methods here.

Study abroad

The Career services team is here to support with any questions you have about your internship or the Professional Year programme. Find the guidelines on Moodle’s Career services section. You will also find the guidelines for the internship report and leaves of absence there.

Course enrolment

Apply for research data

This includes, for example: European Community Household Panel, European Union Labour Force Survey, Community Innovation Survey, European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions, Structure of Earnings Survey, Adult Education Survey, European Health Interview Survey, Household Budget Survey.

The data is free of charge. However, one has to submit a project proposal before getting access to the data. You can find further details on the application process here.

PhD students have to name their advisors in the project proposal. Also the number of the research entity needs to be mentioned (contact Michaela Kreyenfeld for more details). The proposal can be uploaded on the EUROSTAT webpage after you have registered.

Important: The procedure takes 8-10 weeks!
