As a student, you may have questions about your education or whether you have chosen the right programme or course. Are you approaching graduation and thinking about the future? 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.

What you can get help with

There are a variety of issues and areas where a study and career counsellor can provide support and guidance.

  • Have I chosen the right programme?
  • What should I consider when choosing a course or specialisation within my programme?
  • My studies are not going well – what should I do?
  • Questions on suspension or interruption of studies
  • What does the labour market look like for me after graduation?
  • What are my competences and strengths?
  • How should I think about my career choice?
