Study counsellors for programmes and courses

At the department or study programme, there are study counsellors who are well-informed about the subject or programme you want to know more about. Contact them if you have more specific questions about a programme overview, course selections within a programme, the possibilities for placements or studies abroad, or about approved leave from studies. These study counsellors are also the persons to turn to if you are considering an application for transfer of credits or options after studying a certain programme.

To find contact information to study counsellors at your department, please visit the department's website. You can also find contact persons for each course or programme in the online catalogue.
