We will support you if you need help.
Within the university the student counsellor guides students in respect of their choice of study programme or other important study-related matters.
In addition, the counsellor can help you in many other ways, for example: in the event of problems with the examination or education committee, or if you have dyslexia etc.
Students are free to make an appointment with a counsellor to discuss their study or important study-related subjects. An appointment with a student counsellor can be made at each campus via the Student Information Desk.
Dentist / family doctor
If you need medical care it is possible to contact a dentist or family doctor through Avans. As a foreign student this is extremely handy for you. In order to make use of these facilities, you can contact the International Office at Avans.
Church / mosque
In ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Tilburg as well as in Breda, various facilities are available to practise your faith. For example, there are several mosques and churches with regular services.
Süleymaniye Mosque in Tilburg
De Grote of Lieve Vrouwe Kerk in Breda (catholic church)
The protestant church in ‘s-Hertogenbosch
Desirable conduct - that is our concern!
Has someone e-mailed you inappropriate images? A slightly too frequent supportive arm around your shoulder? Discriminating remarks? Sometimes you do not know whether to report it, but you know you want to talk about it. In that case, we offer confidential counsellors. They will listen and help you to find a solution. The confidential counsellors’ basic principle is: "It is not right, if it does not feel right". So you are always taken seriously.
We have a complaint procedure for undesirable behaviour. It describes how to deal with these types of situations. If you want to take action, the confidential counsellors will support you. The student counsellor is also your confidential counsellor. An appointment with a student counsellor can be made at each campus via the Student Information Desk.
Studying with a physical limitation
We offer additional facilities for students with a physical limitation and/or chronic illness (disability).
What to expect?
Sometimes a customised solution is required. Examples of possible special arrangements include:
- additional examination time
- examinations printed in large font
- use of a laptop during examinations
- taking examinations on a computer
What to do?
If you think that your functional disorder or illness may affect your study progress or if you have questions about any of the aforementioned subjects, please contact your student counsellor well in advance of the start of your study programme. Your student counsellor can assess - together with the study programme management, where necessary - any available options and potential limitations. An appointment with a student counsellor can be made at each campus via the Student Information Desk.
