Student Counsellor

A student counsellor can offer information, advice and guidance to assist you with your academic career or personal circumstances. The student counsellor will sit down with you to identify possible solutions and actions to improve your personal performance and academic progress.

Confidential interview

Occasionally, you may run into problems and get stuck – whether in your personal life or in your studies. It's good to know you can discuss any problems with a student counsellor.

Special provisions and facilities

A student counsellor can help you apply for special provisions and facilities. For example, relating to exams, student grants and loans, or in the event of a probable negative binding study advice.

Act in time!

If you're having problems, it's crucial to take action in time. Student counsellors hold walk-in consultation hours that don't require an appointment, so you can easily drop in. Some student counsellors also offer phone consultations at set times so you can briefly discuss any questions or problems you may be having. In some cases, this will be enough to resolve your issues. If not, a follow-up appointment can be scheduled. Click in the right-hand column to see the consultation hours for your study location.
