With a new study comes new experiences. A study adviser can help you define your study path and goals. Whether you need advice about which courses to take or how to improve your studying skills, the study adviser is the first one to get in touch with.
The position of the study adviser towards the student is one of a coach. The coach stimulates students to find their own solutions in their way to adulthood, independence and ability to make their own choices. This is related to the study, but also in student life and with respect to the student's orientation and position in society. In these processes the interests of the student are a starting point.
As a consequence the study adviser is able to detect developments relevant for the university. The study adviser might be seen as “spider in the web”, able to refer a student to lecturers, student counsellors, alumni organizations and institutions and businesses.
The study adviser also mediates between individual students and lecturers, examiners and Examining Boards regarding educational matters.
