Student supervision

It can be difficult sometimes to navigate a huge organisation like Utrecht University. This is why there are numerous people you can go to for supervision and advice.


  • Lecturer
    Lecturers are the first people for you to contact if you have questions or uncertainties about a course.
  • Your tutor
    During orientation, all first-year students are assigned a lecturer as their tutor who will act as your personal supervisor whilst you pursue your Bachelor's degree programme. You discuss your academic progress and other issues related to studying itself with your tutor. You can always schedule additional meetings with your tutor if you feel the need for more.

Practical matters

    The Study Advisor is a confidential advisor and acts as a mediator between students and lecturers. He or she can help you with problems involving academic motivation, delays, exemptions, absence from exams, studying abroad, a plan of study that does not follow the conventional routes etc.
