Educational guidance

Educational guidance is a conversation between student and student advisor about different alternatives and adaptations into, during, and out of the study programme. It is important that you as a student know what to expect from the student advisor, and what you yourself may contribute with to gain full benefit of the guidance interview.

You will receive academic guidance through the academic staff at your study programme.
