Student and career counselling

  • Helps students to see opportunities, regardless of conditions
  • Helps students to get through the entire process - from presumptive student to alumnus
  • Raises students' awareness of the processes going on in/outside them

From us, you can receive help in finding information about the education options available. This could be about which courses and programmes are available and what they entail, possible pathways during and after your studies, the rules concerning university studies or how to apply for higher education.

During a meeting, you are given the opportunity to become aware of your strengths, values, attributes and skills, and motivation and needs.

We assist you in the decision-making process, by giving you tools to figure out what you want to do in the future. You can also get help with planning and organising your studies.
