The Study Advisor for programmes and courses
If you have any questions about a degree programme or a single-subject course in your specific field of study, you are welcome to contact the study advisor in your department.
A study advisor provides more detailed information and guidance in relation to the department's own degree programmes and single-subject courses. For example, course selections within a programme, the course literature, exams, and options after studying a certain programme.
These Study Advisors are presented under "Contact Information" for each course or programme in the on-line catalogue (Master Programmes, Undergraduate Programmes and Courses).
