What does a study advisor do?

Your Study Advisor can help you with questions about the more formal aspects of planning and putting together your degree programme and your study progress or lack thereof. You may consult a Study Advisor for counselling and advice regarding:

  • exam requirements and complex curriculum planning
  • the graduation process
  • applications for exemptions
  • attending courses at other universities (in the Netherlands or abroad)
  • tuition, scholarships and grants or financial assistance
  • studying with a handicap or disability
  • ending your studies and termination of enrollment
  • problems studying (such as a lack of motivation, conflicts with lecturers or other UU employees, personal circumstances that could impede the progress of your studies)
  • study delay due to special personal circumstances (such as illness for example)

If you think you are falling behind in your studies, please contact your Study Advisor as soon as possible.
