Study and career advisor

The study and career advisor can help you if you are uncertain about your choice of study or your future career. 

When should you consult the study and career advisor? 

If you are having doubts about whether you have chosen the right study programme, or you are considering switching study programmes or stopping your studies altogether, you should start by discussing your questions and concerns with your study advisor. A follow-up meeting with the study and career advisor or a mutual plan of action may include talking about your:

  • Choice of study: You are uncertain about the study programme that you have chosen. You have already stopped your studies or you have been forced to stop because of the Binding Study Advice (BSA) that you received and you are wondering which study programme would be most suitable for you.
  • Choice of Master’s studies: You are a Bachelor’s student and you are wondering which Master’s study programme at Radboud University or another university would be most suitable for you.
  • Choice of career: You are a Bachelor’s or Master’s student who is unsure about which job you would like to pursue on the job market. You would like to gain more insight into the jobs and organisations that you feel would be most suitable for you after you have graduated.
  • Choice of study and career guidance for students with support needs: You have an autism spectrum disorder or ADHD, or a psychological or physical vulnerability and you would you like to know if your choice of study is right for you. Or you would like to know which jobs will be most suitable for you after you have graduated, which rules and regulations you should utilise or how you should tackle the job application process.

What does study and career guidance entail? 

Study and career guidance begins with an intake interview, in which we will discuss your choice of study and any questions you may have about your career. We will then work together to determine which type of guidance will be most appropriate for you. For example, this may involve initiating either an individual selection process or a tailor-made process, or taking a ‘study choice’ workshop or a ‘looking to the future’ workshop or a combination of these options. In some cases, we may refer you to a different student counsellor or to the Radboud Career Service.

You can also take one of the online training courses at Gezondeboel. For this purpose, you will need to create an account with your Radboud email address. Visit
