The Study Advisor can answer your questions about the programme curriculum, including inquiries concerning:

  • taking extra course modules;
  • deviating from the official curriculum;
  • facing problems with your progress or falling behind;
  • not finding your programme challenging enough.

The Study Advisor can also provide personal advice or refer you to other support staff if you have problems that are negatively affecting your progress.

Each of the three teaching institutes has its own Study Advisor. If you’re in doubt about who to contact, ask the International Office.
