Local Activities – Tutors and Branches

Tutors and branches are important activities of the student union. The role of the tutors is to support you in study-related situations, and it focuses on organizing events and well-being on the campus.

Tutors support you during your studies. You can contact them if you have questions about your studies, internships, or student life. You can reach the tutors immediately by sending them an e-mail to etutor@ or by participating in a discussion with tutors and other students logged in with the eTutor Course found in Humak’s Hoodle. Welcome aboard!

Tutors and branches organize a variety of activities for all students, locally and online. You can get acquainted with the activities on our website (links take you to another service):
