Welcome to POINT

The Philipps Online Orientation for INTernational Students

Who is this test for?

You have lots of different interests and you would like to study at the University of Marburg, but you are not quite sure which of the many available study courses is the right one for you? Or you already have an idea about what to study, but you are not sure if you will meet all the course requirements and might want to look into possible alternatives?
Then this POINT test is for you.

How does it work?

The following pages will present you with 25 simple questions, asking about your general interests. Answer each question within a range of 1 (“this doesn’t interest me at all”) to 10 (“this interests me a lot”) and our test will present you, based on your answers, with a ranked list of study courses that could interest you.

How to get the most out of the test

When you answer these questions, it might feel right to mark many or most questions with a high interest rating – after all, most of us are interested in many things, from politics to history and from economics to the environment. But we recommend that you carefully consider your answers based on what you would like to deal with on a daily basis. In order to get the most out of this test, think about what you would like to be an essential part not only of your study but also of your career afterwards.
