Study Advisers

Amsterdam Law School

Academic study advisers are at the ready to answer questions about your (choice of) studies, study plan, or personal circumstances (that have an impact on your studies). All consultations with academic study advisers are confidential.

What are some of the things you can approach a study adviser for?

  • Study planning and study delay guidance;
  • Help making (study)choices;
  • Discuss personal circumstances that affect your studies;
  • Information and guidance on the BSA (binding study advice) process;
  • Career counselling;
  • Questions about Teaching and Examination Regulations and transitional arrangements.

How should you prepare for a consultation with an academic study adviser?

The more well-prepared you are for a consultation with an academic study adviser, the more efficiently and effectively the study adviser will be able to help you. The A-Z list and the course catalogue provide a great deal of information; look there first before contacting a study adviser.

How to prepare for a meeting with a study adviser

In order to make the most of your time with a study adviser, be sure to read all rules and regulations concerning your question, as well as information available on the law school and university websites. Check the Academic A to Z page for answers to frequently asked questions and common academic problems.
