In the course of your studies, you can experience situations that can be difficult to deal with on your own. At these times, you can come to the student counsellor with any questions or issues you might have.

These can be, for example:

  • Personal challenges such as relationship difficulties, heartbreak, social stress and anxiety.
  • Study-related difficulties related to motivation, delays, concentration problems, exam anxiety or time management.
  • Economic issues such as student loans, debt and public benefits.
  • Other challenges like substance abuse, eating disorders, anxiety and depression.

Our counsellors can also help you get in contact with public services, and facilitate cooperation between them, the student and the university.

The service is free and the counsellors are bound by confidentiality.
