FPN Academic Advisers

Academic advisers (also called: study advisers within Maastricht University) are - next to your mentor - the first ones to approach within the faculty for information and advice about your studies and about studying at FPN. Students who are unable to continue their studies or experience a study delay are advised to turn to the academic adviser as soon as possible for personal advice and guidance.

But also if you have other questions about your studies, for example about the honours programme, extra electives or maybe a second study, the academic advisers are able to help you decide what your options are or what course would be most advisable.

In case of special circumstances affecting your studies, for example illness or family circumstances, it is of great importance to contact an academic adviser as soon as possible. They can help to set up a customized study plan but they can also see if individual arrangements can be made. Prepare a possible request to the https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/support/during-your-studies/money-matters/funds-students/financial-support-case-study-delay for example, or allow you to take your exams with alternative arrangements.

Academic advisers can invite students if their study progress data show that their results during the academic year are far below the programme requirements or prone to lead to a Negative Binding Study Advice.

All conversations with an academic adviser are confidential.
