Support and advice offered by your study programme

At your study programme you will find a variety of student support:

  • You can contact the study advisor or coordinator of your programme with all questions about the programme you are following, both for practical questions and for personal problems that affect your study progress. 

  • (First year) students can also go to their tutor or mentor. Get in contact with your study advisor for more information. 

  • If you are considering doing an internship or exchange abroad, get in contact with the internship coordinator or international exchange coordinator of your programme.
