Study and supervision
Who can turn to our study advisors?
Our study advisors provide more detailed information about our programmes and give advice to prospective students, students who are enrolled in one of our programmes, and alumni.
For which topics can I contact the study advisors?
You can turn to them with questions about:
- the programme itself
- study planning
- choosing courses/minors
- rules and regulations that apply to a programme
- following courses at other faculties
- studying abroad
The study advisors also monitor your study progress and will invite you talk about your progress, if necessary. It is important to realize that you can turn to your academic advisors in case of personal problems that affect your study performance, as there are a number of rules and funds that can help you getting through difficult times. However, it is crucial to inform the study advisors on time, such that appropriate measures can be taken and the best advice can be provided.
Psychology has several study advisors:
- Iris de Boer
- Lex Jurna
- Ellen Schaafsma
- Arlette van Berkel
- Sietske Weide
Do not hesitate to make an appointment with your study advisor. You can arrange for a meeting by phone (+31-(0)50-363 6301, student service desk) or at the Student Service Desk, first floor Heymans building.
You can send an email: studyadvice.psy rug.nl.
The study advisors are reintroducing per October 11th 2022 their walk-in hours, which will take place weekly on Tuesday and Thursday between 11.00 and 12.00. At the Student Service Desk you can find information about which study advisor is available on which day and in which office you need to be.
The walk-in hour is for short questions that are difficult to ask via mail. If you have documents that need a signature (eg. Bafög ) you are also more than welcome. Scheduling an appointment is not necessary, you can simply visit us. If your question is too difficult to answer in a few minutes the study advisor will ask you to schedule a full (30 minutes) appointment. Keep in mind that if you show up just before 12.00, the study advisor might not have time for you anymore.
