Is there an online coaching for SSC

University of Cologne

Learning is part of the course and a prerequisite for successful completion. Sometimes proven strategies no longer work or a learning block leads to sleepless nights. Learning coaching is an individual online coaching offer that you can take advantage of regardless of location. A coach can assist you if you sometimes ask yourself one or more of the following questions:

  • How can I cope with the learning material?
  • What learning content should I start with?
  • How do I keep track of things?
  • How do I create a learning plan?
  • What type of organization am I?
  • Is there an emergency plan if the time before the exam is very short?
  • Which learning techniques can help me in my subject?
  • How can I memorize a larger amount?
  • When and how often do I have to take breaks?
  • Is there an emergency plan if the study time is very short?
  • How can I increase my concentration?
  • How can I motivate myself to learn
  • How can I overcome my "weaker self"?
  • How can I stop procrastinating?

Learning coaching as online coaching

How does the online coaching work?
The online coaching takes place in a protected online room with you and your coach. The coaches are special experts on all aspects of learning.
You can take part in the online coaching via PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The prerequisite is an internet-enabled device with a microphone and, if possible, a working webcam so that your coach can see you. Special technical knowledge is not required.
The results of online coaching do not differ from face-to-face coaching.

Career online coaching is a cooperation project with the GABAL e.V. network and independent, experienced online coacheswho volunteer for the students. If you have any questions about the background of the coaches or if you are interested in working as a coach yourself, please contact Ms. Marie-Christine Przybyla (
