Student Counselling 

The University of Copenhagen has a range of student counselling offices which provide advice with academic as well as personal issuses.

Faculty and Department-based Student Advisors (Studievejledningen)


If you have specific questions regarding courses or programmes you can 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 further 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).

University Chaplains 

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.

Students with Disabilities

International students who have a disability which may affect their studies at the University of Copenhagen should make the University of Copenhagen aware of their specific needs as early in their studies as possible. Full degree students need to contact the faculty at UCPH in which they are enrolled while exchange and guest students should contact International Education & Grants.
