Students

The Skills Lab is an accessible service desk where UU students can get a clear idea of what extracurricular courses, workshops, individual tutoring, electronic tools, etc. are available to them. Much is available, but this wealth of resources can be hard to find and access for students with specific questions. We can show students where to go to improve any skill, be it writing, presenting, studying, or job-hunting. There is a physical desk at the second floor of the University Library Uithof and a digital desk: this webpage.

Counsellors within your study programme

Study Advisor
Every degree programme has its own Study Advisor who is fully informed about the programme’s curriculum. The Study Advisor can answer your questions about the study programme and provide support or recommendations for your studies.

You should also consult the Study Advisor if you are having problems that are affecting your ability to study effectively, such as personal problems, illness or problems with study skills or if you are falling behind.  More information is available on the pages of your degree programme (on 'Advice and counselling').

Tutor
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? Your tutor is the first point of contact. Your tutor is a teacher from your degree programme and teaches first-year classes.

Mentor
Mentors are higher-year students who can answer questions you may have about your degree, the university and Utrecht. Not every programme has mentors, so you should ask your tutor if they are available for your programme.

More information is available on the general page 'Advice and counselling'.

If you speak Dutch, you can also choose to participate in the Dutch workshops
