Our student counsellors can help you plan your studies. For example, you are welcome to contact them if you need help in finding a suitable course, want to know more about a certain subject, the contents of a course or its expected learning outcomes and methods of delivery. You can also get advice regarding study-social issues, as well as help obtaining any special support that you might be entitled to. In addition, the student counsellors have the important task of ensuring that neither disability, gender or socio-cultural backgrounds become a hindrance to your study or career choices.
The student counsellors are bound by professional secrecy and will not divulge your details to any other party.
