A student walking with a study and career counsellorThe counsellors can provide you with information about university courses and offer counselling about studies, work and the labour market. They can even set up an individual study plan in cases needed.

Whether you have questions about specific courses, university rules, admission requirements or graduation rules, or questions of a more general nature, the counsellor is a professional who will help you get further.

A counselling session may touch on many areas of life. Therefore, it is important to know that the counsellor is bound to professional secrecy with regard to your personal circumstances.
