Questions for academic advisors
Check the video to discover what the academic advisors can do for you.
For questions or advice on the following topics please see your academic advisor:
- Personal circumstances
- Study progress
- Study planning
- Study skills
- Study delay
- Careers guidance (e.g., elective space, master's choice)
- BSA (recommendation on continuation of studies)
- Illness or disability
- Special provisions (for example, extra time during exams)
The academic advisor will be able to help if there are circumstances in which you are not able to study, for example due to illness or personal circumstances. It is vital that you report circumstances that may impede your studies to your academic advisor as soon as possible. Together we can discuss what is important for you and your studies and tell you more about specific regulations, such as the Profile Fund.
If necessary the academic advisor can refer you to the right person or organization for further help. If you are having doubts about your programme or available courses, please see your academic advisor. Your academic advisor can also help you plan your studies and advise you on study skills.
