The Student Counsellors from Career & Counselling Services are available to assist all TU Delft Students. We offer a broad range of services to assist you.
Your first point of contact if you have questions or problems concerning your degree programme is your academic counsellor in the faculty. Your academic counsellor may refer you to the student counsellors for:
- Financial support if you fall behind with your work because of exceptional circumstances
- Facilities and short-term support for those studying with a disability (Horizon) or chronic illness
- Support in submitting an application to a particular fund or in dealing with complex issues concerning the (future) funding of your degree programme
- Support in submitting a complaint or objection (education-related)
- Support with complex issues concerning schemes, regulations and/or facilities
It is advisable to seek help in good time. This not only increases the chance of your receiving effective support; eligibility for some schemes is conditional on enlisting support at an early stage.
Student counsellor sessions are free of charge. All discussions are kept confidential. If necessary, we can arrange for contact with other advisers and support agencies within or outside the university.
