Social Counseling

Gabriel Valdez

Dear students,
my name is Gabriel Valdez, I'm from Argentina, 21 years old and I’m currently studying Industrial Engineering (Materials and Processes) in the 2nd semester.

I believe that one must be willing make change happen, if one wants change to happen. This was one of the reasons why I ran for the students parliament as a member of the "AlFa" (general students party). It is pleasure to now serve as social consulatant and as a member of the RWTH-AStA for the 2015/2016 term.

The department for social services financed by the students and offers help concerning their social situation. We can support you with your BAföG application, if you face any problems with your landlord or you are simply looking for a new apartment. We also offer advice on studying with child and student jobs. 

In addition, the department for social services is able to support you in financial emergency situations.

Be assured that whatever problems you have, we will advise you individually and confidentially.
