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.

All HU-student counsellors work according to a code of conduct. The student counsellor treats everything you discuss and share confidentially.

A student counsellor may, if necessary, give a confidential recommendation to, for example, DUO or an examination board upon your approval. This process is explained in the GDPR-form. When you schedule an appointment, it is essential that you read this form carefully.
