Contact a study advisor if you have any study-related questions or problems. This can include matters related to: planning your studies, doubts about your studies, regulations or falling behind due to personal circumstances.

The study advisors are not dedicated to a particular degree programme. There are six study advisors who are available to all students, regardless of their degree programme. Additionally, each study advisor has his / her own area of expertise. This may be either a particular degree programme and / or a subject such as 'studying and world-class sport'.

A study advisor can provide advice, support and information in a confidential meeting and is available during the designated telephone office hours or walk-in hours. It is also possible to make an individual appointment with a study advisor.


If you have any questions, you can call in during the walk-in hours (maximum of fifteen minutes per student).
