Senate Ombudsman for International Students

The Senate Ombudsman for International Students - currently Professor Leize - is nominated by the Senate of Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences to help international students if they experience trouble with any member of HsKA. For example, if you run into a conflict with a fellow student or professor, or if you feel that you are treated unfairly or differently from other students, the Senate Ombudsman will try to mediate the conflict. Experience shows that this method is usually successful.

Therefore please feel free to contact the Senate Ombudsman as early as possible. Of course he will work discreetly and protect your privacy if you wish.
