The academic counsellors can advise you on both personal and study related matters. Because of our independent position, you can speak to us confidentially on all sorts of subjects. Please consult this webpage to find out more about our work and counselling at the faculty of 3ME.
Both during walk-in hours and when you have booked an appointment, you can find us at the Education and Student Services department (A1, first floor above the main entrance). Please take a seat at the waiting table; we will meet you there.
Both the phone consultation hour and the walk-in hour are meant for short questions. During an open hour, a counsellor can take roughly 10 minutes to answer your questions. Do you need more time, for example because you would like to discuss personal circumstances or a detailed study schedule, please book an individual appointment. If it turns out during an open hour that you may need more time, the counsellor can propose to make an appointment for a later moment.
Please consult this webpage before contacting us.
Your contact with a counsellor is also confidential during open hours.
Phone consultation hours
- Daily: 9.00-10.00 on 015-278 3961
(this phone number is not active outside of phone consultation hours)
- Daily: 12:30 – 13:30
Make sure to check Brightspace if there are changes in our availability.
- You can always e-mail us. We will try to answer within a week. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us.
Appointments are meant to discuss subjects that require a bit more time, such as personal circumstances or drawing up a detailed study schedule. You can book an appointment yourself via our online agenda. During an appointment, a counsellor can take roughly 30 minutes to speak to you. Of course, you can have one or more follow-up meetings after that.
If you have only a short question, we would like to ask you to use an open hour or send an e-mail. That way, a student who does require a bit more help, can book their appointment for an earlier moment.
In case of illness or other personal circumstances that might affect your study, it is important to inform the academic counsellors as soon as possible! If you don’t do so, it may affect your chances to apply for (financial) support or requests to the board of examiners.
