Studentinord provides you free access to Student counsellors at your Campus, or via Skype. In addition, you can visit the Health clinic, apply for a refund from the health fund, and attend various courses throughout the year.


The student counselling service offers privat conversations within all sorts of challenges that you may face in student life. It can involve mental, social, physical or practical challenges – from loneliness and heartbreak to studying techniques. 

The counsellors are located on campus. You do not need a referral to talk to the counselling service. The service is free and the Student consellors are bound by confidentiality.
