Advice and counselling

Are you having problems with or related to your studies? Do you need advice or counselling for personal problems? There are a number of counsellors within your study programme who can give educational guidance. Utrecht University has even more counsellors who can help you.

Do you need help with making choices within your degree programme? Are you falling behind in your studies or are you looking for new challenges? Issues relating to the content of your programme can be discussed with your programme coordinator whereas issues concerning planning or personal circumstances affecting your studies can be taken up with your Academic Counsellor. Apart from these two people, the GSLS and the UU also offer other services with professional coaches that you can contact (see below).

Questions not related to your study programme

In some cases you may want to consult someone who is not related to your specific study programme. For example, if you fall behind due to extenuating circumstances or mental health issues, and it is not possible to correct this through an adjustment in your programme. If this is the case, you may use the contacts mentioned below.

We have put together some study tips and useful links and offer a number of workshops which can help you to improve your study skills.
