Student Guidance

At times you may encounter problems during your studies that you can’t entirely solve on your own. Do you need help, support or advice? There are people who can help you.

· Study Advisor: Students at Wageningen University can consult a study adviser to discuss their study progress and study planning. Want to get the most out of your study? And wonder how you can bring your study and extracurricular activities more in line with your goals? Together with a study adviser you can examine how you can develop your talents and skills further.

· Student Dean: Students from Wageningen University can consult one of the student deans for information and advice on financing, regulations, study delays, studying with a functional disability, complaints or conflicts. They will be happy to help you find a solution. They will treat all information that you share with them in the strictest confidence

· Student Psychologist: Everyone feels a little bit out of sorts sometimes. You can notice this in various ways: from fear of failure, procrastination and problems with planning to eating disorders, stress, gloominess and even depression. Does this sound familiar to you? You are not alone. Our team of student psychologists can help you.

· Confidential Advisor for students: Students at Wageningen University who experience undesirable behaviour can go to a confidential adviser. Undesirable behaviour can assume many forms such as sexual intimidation, aggression and violence, bullying and discrimination or unfair treatment.

· General Practitioners: If you have medical issues you have to see a general practitioner. Wageningen University does not have their own general practioners. You are free to chose any general practitioner in Wageningen. The general practioners from the Student Medical Center Wageningen are experienced in typical student related problems.

Walk-in Counselling

Wageningen University has a daily Walk-in counselling in Forum (room 011, corridor right of the Student Desk). The Walk-in is an open office for urgent support or short questions related to mental or social issues.

Here you can tell your story in an accessible way in 15 minutes. During lunchbreak (daily between 12.30-13.30) there’s a student psychologist (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). In the Walk-in, you can tell your story, if possible you’ll get tips and you’ll get an advice of where to go to with your request for help.
