The University of Copenhagen has a range of student councelling offices which can provide advice with academic as well as personal issuses. You are also always welcome to ask the International Office for advice. If we cannot help you, we can point you in the right direction to get help.
Faculty and Department-based Student Advisors (Studievejledningen)
If you have specific questions regarding courses or programmes you should seek advice at your department or faculty. In addition to the student advisory service available to all students at the University of Copenhagen, you will find that many departments and faculties have advisors especially for international students. Check with your faculty or department to get furhter information about their services.
The Student Counselling Service (Studenterrådgivningen)
The Student Counselling Service provides advice for students who need help in relation to social, psychological and psychiatric issues. Staff includes psychologists, medical consultants and social workers. The main office is placed in the centre of Copenhagen, and in addition there is an office in the University of Copenhagen at Amager (Faculty of Humanities).
Students at all eight faculties have the opportunity to speak to a student chaplain. The student chaplains are available to perform religious rituals and for personal conversations. Conversations are confidential, and students of all religious beliefs (or of no belief) are welcome to see the chaplains.
Visit the University Chaplains' website for contact details.
Students with Disabilities
International exchange or guest students who have a disability which may affect their studies at the University of Copenhagen should contact the International Office as early in their application process as possible, e.g. to enable our housing officers to find suitable accommodation. No special services and facilities are available for international students with a disability, but the International Office will try to provide information according to need. Full-degree students are advised to contact their faculty.
