Academic counsellors

In what situations can you consult with the academic counsellor?

For personal and study related questions or problems, you can consult with the academic counsellor. This can be any problem, for example:

  • reporting illness and/or disability
  • personal study programme questions
  • study planning
  • stopping or switching studies
  • admission to BSc projects
  • problems with courses
  • applying for financial assistance
  • applying for postponement of your BSA.

You can also consult us for more complex matters that are having an impact on your studies and personal life such as:

  • personal or psychological issues
  • more complex medical problems
  • individual guidance in studying with a disability
  • study delay because of family circumstances
  • dealing with study problems and looking for study coaching.

If necessary, the academic counsellor can refer you to a student doctor, a psychologist, a central student counsellor, the Board of Examiners or other institutions.


Report illness or special circumstances as soon as possible::
In case of illness or other special situations that affect your study progress it is best to consult your academic counsellor at an early stage to limit the possibility of a delay in your studies. Otherwise you may miss out on special arrangements like receiving extra time for exams or other forms of support.


Open office hours

Open office hours are meant for quick questions and short consultations on study planning, choices or other study related subjects.

We also offer online open office hours to students who are unable to come to campus.

Book an (online) appointment

In case you want to discuss more complex matters that are having an impact on your studies and personal life, you could book an appointment via our appointment system. This is in addition to our open office hours and follow-ups. During an appointment, a counsellor can take roughly 25 minutes to speak to you. If necessary, you can have one or more follow-up meetings after that.
