To book a time for guidance counselling (now conducted via the telephone or Zoom), or to ask us a question, please email:

In your email, please state:

  • the course or programme you are studying or are interested in
  • describe your questions
  • whether you would like to book a time for guidance or get an email in reply

Before meeting a guidance counsellor:

If you want to meet via Zoom, you will need to be connected to the internet via your computer or a mobile phone, with a webcam and microphone so we can see and hear you. Zoom is a video conferencing tool and you will be invited to a video meeting via a link. If you prefer to talk on the phone, please try to sit somewhere quiet during the meeting.

You can prepare for a guidance meeting by formulating your questions or writing down reflections that you wish to discuss with the counsellor. If you are about to make a decision about your programme or choices within a programme, you can prepare for the meeting by reflecting on your interests and potential goals, i.e. what you want your programme to result in.

Contact us if you have questions or want to make an appointment

When you contact the careers and study guidance service via email, or through the guidance request form, you will receive an automatic reply from the university’s case management system. This means that your case has been registered and that someone will answer your questions as soon as possible. You can follow how your case progresses using the case number provided in the email.
