Availability student service

Since the BTU is in online mode and the student service is therefore currently only available by e-mail, there is a very high volume of inquiries. We are working flat out to process all requests as quickly as possible. Please refrain from multiple requests and queries about the processing status. If employees are not available, you will receive an absence note with information on the substitution arrangements. Please note: If you submit requests by e-mail in accordance with the current BTU guidelines, the date of receipt of the e-mail is considered the date of receipt of the mail. For particularly urgent matters, the Student Service is also available by telephone. Please use the telephone service only in these cases.
