Study guidance counselling

The study guidance counsellor supports you in different study situations. Guidance is about highlighting the student’s ability in making conscious and independent decisions as well as raising awareness about his or her own responsibility as a student. Counselling conversations focus on your studies, career choices and personal conditions. They aim to support and encourage the student’s ability of making well-founded decisions regarding his or her personal development, planned academic degree, and career ahead. Based on your specific situation, the counsellor helps you sort through your concerns and goals.

Study guidance counselling for programme students

Each programme has a study guidance counsellor who helps to support, guide and motivate students through their education. Contact the study guidance counsellor if you, for example:

  • need help with study planning
  • decision-making in general
  • feel unmotivated
  • have thoughts of interrupting your studies
  • want to take study break
You can also contact the study counsellor if you do not feel well, feel lonely or isolated, or other issues that might affect you and your study situation. A conversation with a study guidance counsellor aims at helping you make independent decisions about yourself and your studies. All study guidance counsellors have a degree in behavioral sciences along with professional conversational training. The study guidance counsellor at Chalmers is bound to professional secrecy regard to your personal circumstances.
