Study Advice


Student counsellors are available to respond to all questions regarding the choice of studies and the programs, changes in programs orientation, career opportunities relating to curricula, as well as handling exam failure. The student counsellors also provide advice to students experiencing difficulties balancing academic studies with their personal situations.

For questions relating regulatory requirements (prerequisites for success, repeating a year or a module, etc.), study plans, registration for exams as well as requests for course equivalencies or any other administrative question, the Academic Secretariat is at the students’ disposal :
