What does a study advisor do?

Study advisors have the specific role of helping you whenever possible, to prevent and/or find solutions to problems relating to your study and stay in Utrecht, such as personal problems, illness, problems with study skills or if you are falling behind. Study advisors work in the Faculty and therefore have excellent insight into the possibilities and problems of studying in your particular discipline. Furthermore, they have good contacts with the lecturers in the Faculty and can therefore act as a link between teaching staff and students. You can find further details here.
