How to contact us
There are three main ways to contact our office:
- Office hours
Our office hours take place from 10:00-12:00 hrs every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. You can call us via +31 (0) 13 466 4477, or visit us in-person at the Student Desk (Academia Building). Office hours are intended for students who have been accepted into the exchange program and who have quick questions about their exchange. Students who need a longer or more in-depth advising session are advised to make an appointment instead (see next bullet point below). If you wish to speak specifically to your own Coordinator, you can find their office hours in the table below.
- Appointment with Study Abroad & Exchange Coordinator
You can schedule a 20 minute appointment with a Coordinator for more in-depth help regarding your exchange. Appointments take place online via Teams and must be arranged via our online booking system. Please provide as much detail as possible about your request in the booking form, so that your Coordinator can prepare any information you may need. Make sure you book your appointment with the relevant Coordinator for your region, as other Coordinators may not be able to help you.
All types of queries can be sent to email@example.com. Our response time is up to 1 week. PDF copies of documents can be sent to us via e-mail, which we can sign digitally.
