As a student you are assigned a studentcoach in the first year of your study programme. He or she is the first person you go to with questions. Your studentcoach tracks your performance and provides useful tips and advice where necessary. Check directly with your study program who your studentcoach is. Have you already spoken to your student coach and would you like to make an appointment with a study career choice advisor, student counselor or student psychologist? That is possible!

A student counsellor can help you:

  • solve issues with your motivation
  • find a suitable solution for the obstacles that you may experience and help you make a good choice to continue, take a break or stop your studies
  • to get extra support – depending on the cause – with requesting facilities with the exam committee or DUO

A student psychologist can help you with:

  • complaints, concerns or issues you do not see a direct solution for, through short-term therapy

Depending on your complaints, concerns or issues, you may be referred.

Do you want to make an appointment because you have issues with finding motivation for your studies? Please contact a student counseler.

A study career choice advisor can help you if:

  • you doubt whether your study programme is a good fit for you and whether it is achievable
  • you want to quit your current study programme and you need help with making a new study choice
  • you do not yet know what your next step will be: gap year; studying or working
  • you are almost graduated and you have doubts about what your next step will be: working or continue studying
