Study and career counselling

The study and career counsellors offer support and guidance before, during and after your studies. You can visit them during drop-in hours or book an appointment. You can also book an appointment that is held via Zoom, on the phone or during a “walk and talk” – a dialogue that takes place during a walk.

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.

General study and career counselling

If you have questions and concerns regarding studies and career in general, you can turn to the general study and career counsellors at the university.

Online drop-in hours

We offer online drop-in hours via Zoom. When you enter the Zoom meeting you will be placed in a waiting room until it is your turn. The meeting is kept short and is best suited for limited questions.

Mondays 10:30–11:30

To drop in on Zoom

A study counsellor is talking to a student.

Available appointments held on campus, online or on the phone are published every day and one week ahead. If you are unable to book, please try again later.
