If you have any questions or you require support, then our lecturers and other staff members are here to help you at any time. That support is available as soon as you register with the Bachelor College, at which time you and your coach decide together which major suits you best and how you can make the most effective choices for your electives. And if during the first year it turns out that a different major is more suitable, you can look together with your coach as to how you can change your major during the current academic year.
