The academic advisors assist students of the Department of the Built Environment with problems they experience during their study. The academic advisors have intensive contacts with the student advisors of the Education and Student Service Center of TU/e. The academic advisors don’t have responsibilities concerning the reviewing of students. They are the real point of contact for students for questions like specific personal study information, counseling, coaching and mediation. Naturally a confidential approach of questions and problems of students will be pivotal. The academic advisors also assist students in (re)orienting themselves in study paths in or outside the curriculum.
Every student who eventually has personal or different problems relating to the study will be advised to contact the academic advisor immediately. In principle It is possible to have an appointment with one of the academic advisors within a week.
