At TU Delft every faculty has academic counsellors. An academic counsellor can provide you with general information about your study programme and about studying at TU Delft. The academic counsellor can also provide you with personal guidance and advice regarding the specific situation you are in. You can contact the academic counsellor with all sorts of questions, see below.
You can reach us via
Send an e-mail
- You can always send an email. We try to answer your question within one week. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us.
Make an online appointment
- Via our online agenda tool you can make an appointment with one of our academic counsellors. During an appointment, a counsellor can take roughly 30 minutes to speak with you. Of course, you can have one or more follow-up meetings after that.
For the time being, it is not possible to make a physical appointment at the faculty. It is momentarily only possible to make contact in the ways described above.
