The VU Student & Educational Affairs (CSB) provides various services to enhance the study results of students. The CSB employs three experienced student psychological counselors. They are experienced psychologists and specialized in study-related questions and complaints. They offer both individual counselling and training programs for students.
Fear of failure, procrastination, problems with concentration, lack of discipline or motivation, study related stress, negative self-image or graduation problems.
The student counsellors are bound by a strict code of confidentiality. They will never discuss the reasons for a students’ consultation with anyone else without your express permission.
VU students can sign up via VUnet. As of September 1, 2013, the costs for an introductory appointment are € 25.
If you need more
In case of urgent study-related problems, a student dean or a study advisor can request a priority intake for the student.
If a student is in urgent need of a psychological counsellor, we strongly advise them to contact their general practitioner (“huisarts”) or the ‘ outside of office hours’ GP service: 088-0030600.
