As a student, you may have questions regarding your education and future career path. Get study guidance and support in your career choices from our study and career advisers. Who you should turn to depends on which faculty you are studying at.

Study guidance online

Due to the continued spread of the coronavirus, all meetings with Study and career advisers have been replaced with online services. This means that regular study and career guidance is conducted as usual but is offered by telephone, email, Skype or Zoom.

What a study and career adviser will help you with

Study and career advisers can provide you with support and guidance on a number of different issues. Maybe you are asking yourself:

  • Have I chosen the right education?
  • How should I choose my elective course?
  • What are my strengths and competencies?
