General Student Advising

We advise prospective and current students concerning general study-related issues. Reasons to arrange an advising session with us are various and include: gaing an overview of course offerings, determining the degree program best suited to your interests and skills, changing your program, having doubts about your choice of program, facing difficulties during your studies.

We take time to examine your individual situation. Working together, we develop options to help you to take decisions. In this process, we focus on your needs, experiences and skills.
