Study counselling

Study counselling

Study counsellors at Uppsala University are responsible for providing guidance and information regarding studies and employment market. Their responsibility is also to contact students who appear to be in need of help with their studies.

Turn to the study counsellor if you have any questions regarding your biology studies, employment market or your study situation in general. Maybe you are having trouble choosing which courses to take? Or need someone to discuss some concerns or difficulties with? Contact information for the study counsellors can be found below.

General information

If you need some sort of certificate, you can download some of them via Ladok. You can also ask your study counsellor or course administrator to help you out with this. Study counsellors also handle approved leave from studies and non-completion of studies. If you are not pleased or have opinion regarding a course you may also talk to the counsellor if you do not want to talk directly to the teacher. Note that study counsellors always maintain confidentiality, but if you agree to let the counsellor discuss the matter with others he/she can do this.

If you have questions related studies outside the field of biology or would like to discuss your studies with a person outside IBG, contact the Study Counsellor and Career Office at Uppsala University (018-471 4720, S:t Olofsgatan, 10B, studentservice@uu.se). You can also get records from Ladok and other public information materials there.
