Being at university is not always plain sailing. Sometimes, you get 'stuck' at a certain point: you might be unhappy with how your programme is working out, with your choice of programme or with yourself even... Remember, you don’t have to deal with it alone! Our staff members are always available if you want to talk about your worries or problems. Talking about it with an expert outsider is often the first step towards a solution for a problem that at first seemed insurmountable. Here is a list of the various options there are for counselling.

Study advice

Perhaps you’re hesitating between two programmes and daren’t trust yourself to make the right decision. Or perhaps you’re wondering whether you’ve actually made the right choice when it comes to your studies. Maybe you simply have no idea what you want and you’d like the chance to explore your own talents, strengths and weaknesses. If you’re worrying about any of these matters, you can get in touch with a student advisor for an informal talk.

Learning-path coaches

A learning-path coach is a lecturer from your programme or the head of your faculty. He or she can help you if you have questions about your programme. That could be anything from simply providing specific information about the programme in question or helping you discover and set out a course for your studies that suits you best.

Mental health counselling

Would you like to talk to someone about personal problems? Do you need help dealing with performance anxiety or procrastination? Or perhaps you’d like some advice on how to improve your study skills or some help with drawing up a study schedule. If you need help with any of these matters, get in touch with one of our student counsellors. You can talk to them free of charge.

Ombuds service

The ombuds service protects your rights and duties - which you can read about in the Education and Exam Regulations -, helps with your questions, provides any information you need, and mediates, if necessary, if you have a problem interacting with a lecturer. If a problem arises in the run-up to, or during, the exams, please contact the Exam Ombuds Service.
