In this case, make an appointment with the topsportcoordinator.

Make an appointment

In these cases, you can make an appointment with student counsellor Pieternel Cremers, Marjolein Büscher-Touwen or Roy van Eert.

Make an appointment

  • Holds a position on a board or a participational body;
  • Is enrolled in two study programmes at the same time.

In these cases, it is not necessary to make an appointment with a student counsellor. Please send an email to flexibelstuderen [at] and include the following information:

  • Name and student number;
  • An explanation of why you want to be considered for adapted studying, what bottlenecks you encounter and what you think is needed;
  • In case of board or participation position: name of student board, your role and a supporting document (e.g. screenshot of website). Note: boards can also include the application for all board members in one e-mail;
  • In case of two study programmes: if you are doing your second study programme at another institution, please send along proof of enrolment.

Available support

Radboud University will consider each person’s individual situation in order to see which part of their study programme needs to be adapted, and which changes will be most appropriate, most feasible and realistic. Ways in which a study programme may be adapted for a student include:

  • Priority when signing up for seminars;
  • Access to web lectures;
  • Less strict deadlines;
  • (Partial) exemption of obligatory attendance.
