The studies are an important milestone in life. During your studies, you want to build up the necessary professional and social skills and gain important experience for the future, in order to realise your own potentials later in life. On this path, you take on a lot of responsibility. You’re facing new challenges every day, which often require a lot of strength and energy.

In life, however, not everything always goes according to plan. That can also happen in your studies. Many unexpected problems can be solved quickly if you get competent help in time. It often helps at first if you can talk about your worries and problems with someone.

 

StuCoS

The "Student Counselling Service" (StuCoS) at the European Campus Rottal-Inn is aimed at students who feel the need to talk confidentially about themselves and their personal situation. The students are supported in looking at their own situation "from the outside in", looking for and finding solutions together, in order to ultimately get out of a difficult situation.

StuCoS sees itself as the first point of contact for very personal concerns of those seeking advice. Since the counsellor cannot be an expert in all areas, they work confidentially and closely networked with other counselling centres in the region. In this way, you will receive comprehensive professional guidance and support in your personal concerns.

 

Counselling services

The counselling centre “StuCoS“ can help you in the following areas and situations:

Psychosocial referral counselling:

  • General issues of daily life and social integration
  • Conflicts with fellow students, teachers or in your relationship, etc.
  • Dissatisfaction with your social situation
  • Psychological stress caused by studying
  • Socialising difficulties or other issues that are bothering you

Educational counselling:

The following questions often come up in connection with your studies:

  • What is expected of me as a student in terms of learning?
  • Which study methods are best suited for daily learning in studies?
  • Are my self-competences dependent on my own learning success?

Often these questions cannot be answered on their own. You will receive competent support in the following areas:

  • Problems with learning through coaching, e.g.: effective exam preparation
  • Stress and studying, relaxation techniques, learning techniques
  • Self/time management, diary to manage your study time, etc.

sustainability

Sustainability is an integral part of the university operations at the European Campus Rottal-Inn. With a variety of projects and activities we make sustainability a tangible experience. As a university, we train multipliers and thus bear a responsibility in shaping a sustainable future.

 

Promotion of skills and raising awareness in the sense of education for sustainable development through innovative teaching, actions, excursions and the development of projects related to topics of sustainability.

We use the synergies between our projects and network partners to creatively address innovative issues related to sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Sustainability Lab is open to all professors, staff & students for project work, teaching and final theses.

 

Check out this overview of the Sustainability Lab.

 

International days bring together activities, projects and ideas around a single theme and make it accessible to a broad public in a variety of ways. At the European Campus Rottal-Inn, university members use thematically appropriate days as hooks to present study programmes, research projects or current topics in various formats on campus. Whether it's an interview, a competition announcement or a short contribution via the social media channels - there are no limits to creativity to generate attention for this day and provide information.

From WS21/22, the Deggendorf Institute of Technology in cooperation with the OTH Amberg-Weiden and the TH Nuremberg will offer a digital self-learning course (in German) entitled "Fundamentals of Sustainability". The course provides insights into the societal, economic, material and technical foundations of a transformation to sustainability and shows the causes for this from a scientific perspective.


 

Robert FeichtRaimund Brotsack and Christoph Lindenbergerlead through the following four modules of the course:

General foundations of sustainability: Students learn about the interrelationships of social, ecological and economic factors and actors and apply basic sustainability models and analysis methods. 

Economic framework of sustainability: Students learn methods of environmental and resource economics and assess the use of sustainability policy instruments.

Materiality and sustainability: Students understand the material cycles of the earth and learn about the production of materials from renewable raw materials and the recycling and disposal of products. 

Energy and sustainability: Students understand the basics of climate change. They learn about current technologies and developments and assess measures in the field of regenerative energy systems in the context of grid expansion, energy distribution and storage technologies.

The course can be booked via the Virtual University of Bavaria and can be integrated by vhb sponsoring universities into their degree programmes. The project leader at TH Deggendorf is Prof. Dr. Robert Feicht (robert.feicht@th-deg.de).

 

Sustainability is an integral value and component of the European Campus Rottal-Inn and accordingly also means for us to harmonise "economic performance, ecological responsibility and social justice". It is precisely these basic pillars of sustainability that we are currently trying to unite in an exciting and ambitious pilot project on the topic of "Forest, Health and Tourism". The driving research question here is: "How can we use local, native forest and natural areas sustainably, for health tourism, and create added value for all stakeholders in the process?"

In the course of the INTERREG project AB291 "Forest Health Tourism Network", in which the European Campus is even the lead partner, we have joined forces with a broad, interdisciplinary consortium and are investigating this and other important questions - especially in Corona times.

You can find more information about our exciting project in our project overview.

 

 

On the world ocean day • 8th June • the student association RESP e.V., ECRI's EcoLab and the Tourism Naturally Online Symposium would like to invite you to an online discussion on overfishing and plastic in the ocean with blue park ambassador Tharaka Sriram.

The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) has been able to attract a first-class appointment for the professorship of "Global Public Health". Dr. Sabine Dittrich has held the position at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) in Pfarrkirchen since 1 August. Her students in the Master's programme Global Public Health can look forward to a lecturer with worldwide experience in public health.

Colourful and curious - that is simply Prof. Dr. Sabine Dittrich's motto. "From my red hair to my stories from all over the world - colourful, curious, yet determined and assertive. That probably describes me best," Dittrich says about herself. Her curiosity and hard work have taken as far as Singapore, England, the Netherlands, Laos and Switzerland. After almost 20 years abroad, the native of Augsburg is now returning to Bavaria. In her luggage: a lot of experience in terms of health care and research. Her area of expertise relates to how pathogens are detected, diagnosed and communicated in the health system. Her work in Laos and Geneva had the greatest impact on the microbiologist. In Asia, she researched and practised at the country's largest state hospital; in Geneva, she sat as an expert at the round table to help make global health decisions. She knows the systems inside and out. Sabine Dittrich has worked with the world's top infectious disease researchers, held positions at the EU and the Tropical Institute in Berlin, and maintains close ties with the University of Oxford. She now wants to bring her expertise, experience and networks to DIT. "I am looking forward to meeting the students and working with them on how to build better health systems. It will be great to educate this next generation to ensure that all people around the world have access to good healthcare including new technologies," says the newly appointed professor. At DIT, the combination of international orientation and a pragmatic and innovative environment appeal to her. Her students can expect practical examples and interactions with colleagues in international organisations as well as many discussions from her. After all, Dr Sabine Dittrich knows that only those who are open to new opinions and data can follow scientifically sound paths. Until the students return to the university in early October, the new professor and her dog are busy settling in and getting used to the local dialect.

At the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) summer fest in July, various cakes were sold at the international bake sale. The proceeds from the cake sale have now been donated to the Kinderkrebshilfe Rottal-Inn e.V. (Children’s Cancer Aid).

It is a tradition that cakes are sold for a good cause at the ECRI summer fest and the proceedings are donated to a charity. This year, the cake sale raised a total of € 385. Campus Director Prof. Dr. Horst Kunhardt added the remaining difference to €500 from his own pocket, which were donated to the Kinderkrebshilfe Rottal-Inn e.V..

For Josef Hofbauer, the 1st chairman of the Kinderkrebshilfe Rottal-Inn e.V., the donation is an important signal and enabled the association to support children with cancer and services that are not covered by health insurance. In addition, donations can also help many families who are in financial need due to the disease, for example, when the salary is not enough or the parents have to stop working to be able to care for their child. Every donation, no matter how large or small, is needed and goes directly to where it is needed. Hofbauer emphasised during his visit to the campus. He also exchanged views with Prof. Kunhardt on the palliative and hospice situation in the Rottal and the surrounding districts of Passau and Deggendorf. The lack of palliative care and assistance in the region makes the work of the Kinderkrebshilfe Rottal-Inn e.V. all the more necessary.
