Academic counsellors

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.

Making 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.

Drop-in clinic

This online drop-in clinic is intended as a way to quickly provide information in response to short questions. In many cases the academic counsellor will need to refer you to another part of the organisation or another person where you will be able to get the specific help you need. For example you might be referred to the Contact Centre, to another faculty, to another person or to a website. 

The drop-in clinic is expressly not intended for:

  • Discussing individual special circumstances
  • Individual questions regarding study planning
  • Requests for a study place in the faculty due to special personal circumstances
  • MOMI, RPF related issues

If you need to discuss any of these specific topics you are welcome to make an appointment via our online appointment system

The online drop-in clinic is held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 12:45 and 13:45.

You will be granted a maximum of 5 minutes. If needed you can of course make a follow-up appointment.
