Student counsellor services

Students may talk to a student counsellor in confidence about social and financial issues and issues related to their studies. It is advisable to talk to the counsellor if problems occur that can distract a student from studying.

Personal matters may influence the progress and motivation of students and their studies. Students may be troubled by e.g. issues related to personal relationships, circumstances at the school or even their income.

A student counsellor provides the opportunity for students to discuss these issues confidentially with a professional, guiding and supporting students in their different circumstances.

Special education teacher

The special education teacher can help in situations where learning is difficult. If you have a diagnosed learning difficulty, illness or injury that hampers your ability to study, or you suspect that you might have a learning disability, we can find out suitable ways for you to study despite the challenges. ​Please, contact your local special education teacher.

If you have been diagnosed with a learning difficulty, illness or injury, you may receive individual study arrangements. Please, contact your study guidance counsellor or your special education teacher.
