Support during your study
The Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) believes it is important that you, as a (prospective) student, can study safely and healthily. And that you know who you can turn to if you need support in order to be able to do your study successfully.
As a (prospective) student, you can turn to the following people at the AHK:
The student counsellor provides information and guidance to students with both practical and personal matters, which are related to the study conditions and life as a student. Each academy/study programme has its own student counsellor.
You can turn to the student coach of the AHK for an introductory training session on planning and time management, a study-related stress/fear of failure training course and individual coaching.
The AHK has several confidential advisers. You can turn to a confidential adviser if you encounter (or have encountered) unsafe situations or undesirable behaviour.
You can talk to the liaison officers of the AHK if you have or have had to deal with domestic violence or child abuse in your private life.
If you have difficulty reading, writing or concentrating, you can make use of the online program TextAid.
In addition, every academy/study programme has its own facilities. For more information, please look on the website of your own academy or ask your student counsellor.
