Student counsellors

Information provision, support, advice and education

For study-related questions, please contact your study advisor. If you have any questions and/or problems involving regulations and statutory provisions, please contact the student counsellors. This could include questions regarding your legal position and Dutch legislation; this thus concerns questions or issues that do not directly involve the curriculum (the content of the programme), but you as a student.

The student counsellor can also help you in special cases. For instance, if you participate in elite sports or you have a functional impairment, you can ask the student counsellor to help you plan your study and, for instance, request a grant.

Students who are parents

Students who are pregnant or have young children can contact the student counsellors or the study advisor with questions regarding study planning or other issues. A Partou childcare facility is located on campus Woudestein.

You can also visit the student counsellor for other issues including:

  • Finances (tuition fees, student grant or loan) and financial support for personal circumstances
  • Study progress (e.g. BSA, illness or personal circumstances)
  • Enrolment, terminating enrolment, admission and graduating
  • Support in applying for a student grant from private funds
  • Requesting grants for board membership
  • Problems with your faculty (mediation, complaints, objections and appeals)
  • Study choice, planning and motivation, as well as how to study, and taking exams
  • Housing: for questions and advice on obtaining a priority procedure.
