Who are the student counsellors?

The Student Guidance Service at the Faculty of Arts is provided by about 45 students and nine full-time, salaried student counsellors.

Your local student counsellor can give you answers to practical questions about general and subject-specific rules which are important for your studies, as well as offering you specific guidance in relation to the subjects involved in your degree programme. You are also welcome to ask questions of a more personal kind (doubts about your course or how it suits you, for instance). Your local student counsellors can also help with referring to other counseling services at Aarhus University, if needed. 

All the student counsellors have general insight into the degree programmes at the Faculty of Arts, and keep up to date with the general laws and rules which may be important for you. 

What happens in a guidance session?

The content of a guidance session varies from one student to the next. So we always start by finding out what each session should focus on. This means that you will be asked to define what we need to talk about and which topics need to be included. A guidance session can focus on study planning and the challenges you are currently facing, for instance. But if you are unhappy with your course, we can discuss that as well.

Sessions involve a dialogue between you and the counsellor, and the main aim is to identify your wishes, thoughts, goals and opportunities. Sometimes more than one session may be needed to develop and add detail to the plans of action that we have drawn up together.

Your own thoughts are one of the most important elements in each session and the results deriving from it. The job of the counsellor is to listen and ask questions with a view to helping you to gain clarity about your situation and your opportunities.

We have a duty of confidentiality. In other words, we treat everything that we discuss with strict confidence.

We look forward to meeting you.
