Would you like to have more information about extra counselling, special requirements and/or services, please send an email to Your email will be kept confidential. Upon receipt, we will contact you as soon as possible.

In order to give you the best possible service, we strongly recommend you enquire about the facilities and possibilities available well in advance of your prospect study period in Delft.

You can directly contact the following persons. Who you should contact depends on the particular situation:

Academic counsellor

The faculty academic counsellor is the first person to contact for matters related to your academic studies. You can discuss with him or her what you need in terms of counseling and services: the student counsellor knows the various channels and possibilities available to you. He/she can also help you to adapt to your academic degree program: Sometimes student counsellors refer you to the university student counsellor*.


The psychologists offer help to students with difficulties that stand in the way of good studying, on individual basis as well as in groups*. More information can be found here.

University student counsellor

The university student counsellor offer advice about all matters that are not directly related to academic issues, such as student financial aid, university regulations and material provisions*.

Student assistants

Horizon's student assistants can offer you practical help, for example by showing you around TU Delft regarding studying with a disability or by supporting you with application procedures. Since they are also students at TU Delft, they can help you further based on their own experiences.

*All discussions with academic counsellors, psychologists, student counsellors and student assistants are strictly confidential.

Joseph Chin

Joseph started his study (Maritime Technology) in 2018. Due to personal challenges regarding ADHD he wanted to help others facing similar obstacles during their studies. This started with an assistant job at the education department of 3mE, but quickly spread to becoming active at the student platform Student Onbeperkt (meaning: unlimited). Here, he learned a lot about study disabilities, including his own, by listening to the experiences of fellow students. As of August 2022, heโ€™s got the chance to use this experience at the Horizon desk.  He will do this by being closely involved with the Study Buddy project as well as being a general assistant to the counsellors, speaking with students and helping where possible.
