Academic Advisor

Academic Advisors Erasmus MC

The academic advisors of Erasmus MC inform and advise on specific questions about your educational journey. We are there, so every student can have student success. The information on these pages is primarily meant for students of Medicine and the Research Masters.

Attention: Much information can be found on STiP or Canvas. Please read this information first before booking an appointment.

You can book an appointment with the academic advisor if:

  • you need someone to talk to or to spar with
  • you want a confidential conversation about your personal circumstances, for example if:
    • you or anyone in your family have health issues
    • you are you are not feeling well
    • you are dealing with a functional impairment
    • you are a long term caregiver
    • there are any other stressful situations that have a negative effect on your studies or your wellbeing

The academic advisor acts as an advisor to the Examination Board and the Program Director for students who want an exception to the rules. Therefore, it is important they are made aware of any personal circumstances that might negatively impact your academic performances. This will enable the academic advisors to give a well-constructed advice. The information you give them is confidential and will not be shared with anybody else without your permission.
