How can a student counsellor help you?
If you get stuck in your private life or in your study do not hesitate to talk to a counsellor. Your student counsellor is there to listen and, at your request, will give you information, advice and a second opinion about subjects connected to your study programme, your choice of study or your personal circumstances.
Meetings with a student counsellor are confidential. No information will be communicated to others without your consent or knowledge. Student counsellors are centrally based at Student Services so they are not attached to a school or study programme and thus operate independently.
To give an example, in some cases you might be entitled to financial support in the event that your study programme is prolonged due to circumstances beyond your control. In certain situations, the counsellor may refer you to an external expert, such as a psychologist.
Studying with a physical or mental disorder
If you are studying with a physical or mental function disorder, the student counsellor is your first point of contact. Provisions can be made for many of the obstacles on your path, such as: extending examination times, alternative types of assessment, additional tutoring, proper work placement, technical adaptations etc.
Make an appointment as early as possible, preferably before starting your studies.
To arrange a meeting with a student counsellor, make an appointment through the secretarial office.
: +31 (0)50 595 4028 or just go to their desk at Zernikeplein 11, Van DoorenVeste, room A1.05 ( first floor).
