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.

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.

Apply via Osiris Cases

If you want to discuss your situation and explore if you are eligible for extra support, you can indicate this via Osiris Cases. Osiris Cases is a separate file within Osiris student, the digital registration system of the UU. After you have opened your case in Osiris, you will receive a confirmation and the possibility to arrange a meeting with one of the study advisors.

Have you started a programme at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences this academic year? If so, you will have received information in early July that you can apply for facilities through Osiris. If you have not yet done so, please register via Osiris as soon as possible. If you have any questions about studying with a disability or chronic illness, please contact the study advisors.

If you already had a meeting with the study advisor about the need for facilities but they’re not registered in Osiris Student please send us an email:

What kind of support does the university offer?

The study advisor can provide you with the exact details of the options available to you. These will be recorded in Osiris. Utrecht University also provides (financial) support to students who have suffered a serious study delay. Our services include coaching and helping you with your application at the Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs (DUO). Further information can be found on the Disability or chronic illness page.
