Study Adviser

The PPLE study advisers give personal guidance to students with disabilities, study and/or personal problems and have a direct referral function to other staff within the university. This work is done alongside the counselling services provided by the general Student Services department of the University of Amsterdam.

Due to the Corona-related measurements the PPLE Study Advisers can only be contacted online. No in-person meetings will be taking place until on-campus teaching activities resume.

The Study Advisers can be contacted by phone during Office Hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 12.00-14.00 hours.
