What can the Student Counsellor help with
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 such as 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.
The Student Counsellor can also help you get in contact with public services, and facilitate cooperation between them, the student and the university.
