Student counsellor

Are you running into problems which may impede the continuation of your studies? The Student Counsellors help students out who struggle with personal issues like:

  • long term illness,
  • functional impairments,
  • physical and/or mental issues (temporary or chronic),
  • special personal circumstances,
  • financial issues brought about unexpectedly,
  • assistance with appeals and objections
  • if you are a foreign student who has problems with the language.

The Student Counsellor can assist you when applying for extra arrangements to keep study delays to a minimum. If you need a referral to the Student Psychologist, the Student Counsellor can assist you.

You can reach the Student Counsellors by emailing: decanaat@hu.nl. If you wish to schedule a meeting you can phone daily from 10.00 am until 12.00 am to: 088-4813322 (due to circumstances the support line is closed until further notice, the student counsellor can be reached by email).
