Who to contact?
Students can seek advice from the programme management, for general issues from the program leader and for individual issues from the program coordinator. Before the start of the thesis project, every student is required to have a meeting with the programme coordinator to assess the study progress and the detailed plans to complete the master programme.
Associated with the programme, we have a dedicated Equality, Diversity & Inclusion council that will concern itself with any issues that come up within the Institute for Theoretical Physics. As the theoretical physics Master’s programme has strong ties with the institute, students who have questions or concerns relating to EDI are welcome to reach out to the council.
Have you run into a dead-end in your academic progress or are you experiencing problems of a more personal nature? You do not have to tackle your issues on your own. Utrecht University has many members of staff who can assist and advise you. The University has a variety of specialized counsellors that you can contact:
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.
