Study adviser or coordinator

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 study 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

  • requests for exemptions
  • advice on delay in studies
  • arranging extra time for examinations on personal grounds
  • advice on study skills

Study Advisers can help with other matters too. They work according to the Code of Conduct of the Dutch Association of Study Advisers (LVSA).

Depending on the nature of the questions, a Study Adviser can provide personal advice, refer you to someone else, or put you in contact with a different department within the university. In the case of specific personal circumstances or personal problems, the Study Advisor can provide you with a referral to someone else who can help.
