The Student Counsellors

How can we help you?

We are typically enrolled in the same bachelor’s or master’s programme as you. We are educated counsellors and are therefore able to guide you if you have questions regarding:

  • courses
  • exams
  • rules and regulations
  • credit transfer
  • planning of your studies, etc.

We can also help you if you are delayed or you have received mandatory credit transfer from a previous study programme.

We look forward to meeting you.

Contact us

There are two ways to get in touch with us:

We encourage you to use your AU e-mail (studentnumber@post.au.dk) when you write us an email. Please remember to state your full name and degree programme.  

What to expect in a student guidance session?

A guidance session is a confidential dialogue between you and the study counsellor, and may focus on all matters relating to your life as a student. During the session, we will focus on identifying your wishes, thoughts, goals and opportunities. A guidance session may thus revolve around many different aspects such as rules and regulations, choice of courses, study delay, exam anxiety, etc. The counsellor will listen, ask questions and give you the correct information, but it is your responsibility to present and actively reflect on your challenges, wishes or dilemmas.

You are always welcome to contact your study counsellors. If we cannot help you, we will usually be able to refer you to someone who can.

All study counsellors are governed by professional secrecy. This means that we treat all enquiries with strict confidentiality.

Welfare counsellor with a focus on well-being

As a welfare counsellor I am a member of the study administration staff. I can help you in case you face problems of a more personal character or if for other reasons you prefer to talk to a counsellor who is not a student. The sessions will often extend beyond technical study-related questions and could concentrate on personal issues concerning life as a student. This could for example be problems with study completion, delay, exam anxiety, doubt about your choice of study, etc.

If you have problems regarding courses, rules and regulations I will refer to the abovementioned student counsellors.

​When you book a guidance session, I allocate 30 minutes for the session.
To secure a good preparation for the session, I kindly ask you to add a few lines about your problem, when you book the guidance session.
