Study Advisors

The study advisors are the point of contact for students in any of the faculty’s programmes. They provide personalised advice and guidance with regard to study-related matters. The study advisors can advise on a variety of matters including:

  • study planning, study progress, problems with your study, and study delays;
  • curricula;
  • transition regulations;
  • taking electives at another university;
  • binding study advice;
  • arrangements in the event of illness or personal problems;
  • facilities for students with a functional impairment;
  • facilities for student-athletes (‘Topsport’);
  • continued degree programme.

There are four study advisors at the faculty, Ms C.A. Dubbeldam (LLM), Ms R.K. Erkel (LLM), Ms J.S.P. Westercappel (LLM), and Mr H.C. van Meijgaarden. They are available during a number of telephone consultation hours and open consultation hours. It is also possible to make an appointment with one of them.
Brief questions can be submitted by email.
