Study counselling

Study programme counselling

The study programme counsellor will answer these and other questions:

  • How many credits can / must I take?
  • Which subjects can I choose?
  • What are the deadlines for applying for and finalising my study programme?
  • How do the course sequence prerequisites work and are there any exceptions?
  • Can I study part-time?
  • How do I request exemptions? (in Dutch)
  • How is my study progress checked and how do I deal with decisions about it?
  • What is the 10% rule when you fail a module and how is it applied?
  • What is the learning account and why is it important?
  • What should I do if I have doubts about the course I have chosen?

In addition, the study programme counsellor acts as a mediator between you and the Study Programme Commission. For example, if you want to apply for a study programme which deviates from the normal rules, the study programme counsellor will submit your request to the Study Programme Commission.
