General Study Counselling

Photo showing two students talking to each otherIs your situation that you know you want to study something, but you are not at all sure what? We're here to help you, with general study counselling!

Our general study counsellors can help you if you are:

  • Unsure about your choice of studies or career
  • Have general questions about university studies
  • Are wondering if the course/programme you are studying is right for you.

If you already have an idea of what you want to study or have questions about a specific subject area, contact the study counsellor for that subject area directly.

Drop in – for short questions on practical matters

When: Every Tuesday during semester, from 12 noon–2 PM.
Where: Rosenlundsgatan 4, third floor.

If you can’t get to our Drop-in sessions, there are also other options for getting in touch with us. You’ll find more information in our booking system.

Everything you say and communicate to us is protected by our obligation of confidentiality.

Book an appointment for extended counselling

Book an appointment to talk to us – by phone or Zoom call, or come and see us at Rosenlundsgatan 4.

To help you get the most out of your appointment with us, it’s a good idea to prepare yourself in advance as follows:

  • Write down your questions

    Think about your expectations, what you want to get out of the appointment. Write down any questions that you may have. If your questions relate to specific subject areas/programmes/courses, you should instead book an appointment with the study counsellor for that subject area(s).

    If you would like our assistance as a sounding board regarding your choice of course/programme and help with choosing, bring information about the courses/programmes you might be interested in to us. If you have any questions about a specific course/programme, you should book an appointment with the study counsellor for that course/programme.

  • Have a look at SACO's 'Guide till studievalet'

    This is only available in Swedish, but if you are able to read Swedish, this guide can provide some assistance in choosing what to study. The study counsellors here at the University are also more than happy to provide support to you on the pathway to your decision.
