Study advisers

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.

Academic issues

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.

Practical issues

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

If you encounter problems during your study, if you are delayed in graduation, then the study advisor will help you catch up, where necessary in consultation with the student counselor or other people in the university. If difficulties arise, please contact the study advisor as soon as possible. Everything discussed with the study advisor is confidential (corresponding to the code of conduct of the national association of study advisors).

The office hours are only open to students enrolled in the Statistical Science master.
