Student services

The study counsellors can provide you with information about university courses and offer counselling about studies, work and the labour market. If you have questions about university rules, admission requirements or graduation rules, do not hesitate to ask. Based on your specific situation, the counsellor can help you sort through your concerns and see the different options available for your choice of studies.
