When finding a suitable study programme, you should always have your own interests and skills in mind, too. Interest tests and self-assessment can be helpful tools when exploring your personality. After answering (online) questionnaires, you are usually given feedback on those fields of study which might be suitable for you. However, a number of online tools can also be ideal for comparing your expectations on one side and the requirements of specific subjects on the other side.

Despite these options, you should also consider other information and use advisory services to help you make your decision at the end of your search for the right study programme.
