Study counsellors for programmes and courses

A study counsellor in your department 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, course literature, exams or specific questions about approved leave from studies or non-completion of 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 website here or your digital learning platform. You can also find contact persons for each course or programme in the on-line catalogue
