In every semester new students are joining the University of Duisburg-Essen. It is always very difficult for them to make a firm decision and choose a study program and then its appropriate courses. It’s very important and often determines one’s prospects for the future. Many of these new students lack insights and experience, so they either look for consultation provided by the university or ask senior students, which often helps them to make good decisions during their studies. But often students either lack the awareness of such programs provided by the university or are shy to ask for advice.

This thesis aims to help new and currently enrolled students in need of proper knowledge and recommendations of the study programs and their courses. This can be achieved by leveraging the Knowledge Graph and Word Embedding techniques to design and develop an explainable study program and courses recommendation system based on students' interests.
