Your study adviser or coordinator is an expert on all aspects of your study programme. If you have any questions or concerns about your programme, whether they be of a practical or academic nature, you can contact your study adviser.
Are you experiencing academic difficulties? Or are you falling behind in your studies due to personal circumstances? If so, it is essential that you speak to your study adviser/coordinator as soon as possible. He or she can advise you on the best course of action and, if required, assist you in dealing with academic delay.
You can also speak to your study adviser about a range of practical issues concerning your programme, such as:
- Planning your studies
- Schedule issues
- Choosing elective credits
- Requesting exemptions
- Advice on internship
The study advisors can help you with:
- (complex) study planning
- choosing a study programme or specialisation
- thesis problems
- internships and electives
- studying abroad
- impending study delay
- study planning and approaches
- referral to student psychologists and/or counsellors
- information about exemptions and special requests
- requesting extra time or facilities for exams, under certain circumstances
- study skill problems
You can request a meeting with a study advisor in case of these and many other problems and questions. Depending on the nature of your question they will give you personal advice, refer you to the right people, or contact other departments within Leiden University.
