Study advisers

Your study adviser or coordinator is an expert on all aspects of your study programme, for example exam regulations, planning, academic issues, study delay etc.

Every study programme has a study adviser. If you are falling behind in your studies you must inform your study adviser right away. It is also wise to let your study adviser know as soon as possible if personal circumstances are threatening to have a negative impact on your studies.
