We're here to help you get the best out of your student life. Our StudentSuccessCentre can help you with information on the practical aspects of your studies, on studying abroad and extra courses, on mentors and healthy lifestyles, and on meeting other students.
Student Info is the place to be for all your practical questions. Student Info will help you with questions concerning your study programme or studying in general, with administrational matters, and when things go wrong.
Student Info is in place to help you out with all of your questions:
- The moment of registration and arranging your enrolment through Studielink.
- Where to find your schedule or a certain classroom.
- Booking a class / study room for your project group.
- The enrolment for your exams.
- Your study results in Progress.
Other matters and issues we can help you with include:
- Helping you out with all forms and documents which have to be applied for, filled out, signed and stamped.
- If you face obstacles in your personal circumstances, you can arrange a meeting with a student counsellor through us.
- Questions you may have for which you don’t know where to go or who to reach out to. Don’t keep your question to yourself, but reach out to us – stop by, or get in touch via email or phone.
Central Perk, a Place of Diversity, is a living room for students of all study years and backgrounds to meet and support each other without necessarily always focussing on studying. Everyone is welcome! Central Perk is hosted by students; its targets are having fun, creating a relaxed and cosy atmosphere, meeting new people, and supporting each other.
To feel successful, you can sometimes use some additional help. Next to the modules of your study programme, NHL Stenden offers inspiration and support in the shape of student training courses and workshops. You can follow these at your own wish, in addition to your study programme. Learn how to study more efficiently, how to manage your time effectively and how to keep a balanced lifestyle. NHL Stenden Student Training Courses are diverse and changes every term.
X-Honours is an extracurricular programme offered by NHL Stenden for students who are open-minded, curious and want to go the extra mile. We meet every Wednesday afternoon in the X-Lab (room N-D.0037). During this time, we have workshops where we help companies solve certain problems or listen to inspirational speakers. The programme is increasingly being led by the programme’s students as they share their passions and experiences.
The student counsellors are there to offer a sympathetic ear to students. They also consult with team leaders and coaches to talk about how more personal attention can be given to students and can recommend a StudentSuccessCentre course or group for support in setting study goals and progress.
"Are you okay?" is a question that is often asked in the student counsellor rooms. I also ask it regularly. Do you feel well and do you feel safe now that we can go back to school after having to work from home so much for so long? Personally, I love being back in the building. The liveliness of the students and my colleagues help me blossom, but this is not the case for everyone.
If you have some form of disability and are wanting to take a degree, we offer a wide range of possibilities to help you. Our student counsellors can help you find the solution that suits you best so you can use your talents and obtain your diploma.
What is a disability?
The expression disability is a collective term used to cover chronic diseases, mental and physical complaints, dyslexia, and dyscalculia. These include diabetes, rheumatism, vision impairment, depression, AD(H)D, severe migraines, and autism. Disabilities do not necessarily lead to problems during your studies. However, if they do, then an NHL Stenden student counsellor will help you find a solution.
Discuss the possibilities with a student counsellor
If you have a disability and want to study at NHL Stenden, then contact a student counsellor on +31 (0)58 244 11 55 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you are still no sure which programme you want to take, you can still contact us to find out what is, and maybe isn’t, possible within the programme. Simply make an appointment with a student counsellor to discuss your situation. If you become disabled during your study or you require other facilities, then we will try to find a solution together.
We offer various solutions to help you get on with your studies. It may be that you need more time to complete test or have less strict attendance requirements. Or it could be that the physical environment needs to be adapted, or that you need personal facilities, such as customised chairs. We will try to come up with a tailored arrangement when discussing your needs. Of course, the solutions will need to fit within the scope offered by the degree course and exam programmes.
Adjustments and facilities
In addition to personal support, adaptations and facilities can make all the difference. You and the student counsellor will work out a solution together that is tailored to your situation. If you’d like to find out more about the various options, you can see some examples of adjustments and facilities here.
Playing sports at a high level and doing a degree is no easy mix, but at NHL Stenden we can help you combine your sporting ambitions and your studies.

Choosing a degree is a big decision and it's only natural that you spend time weighing up your options. It may be that you're not at all sure you're making the right decision. This is where our study advisors can step in and help.
Our study advisors can go through your options with you, talk about your situation and find out what the most helpful next step will be. We'll look at your interests, qualities, personality and ambitions. If necessary, we can get together online or offline to discuss things further so that you can be sure you're making the right decision.
