Dear University Student. Did you know that you have access to diverse services through the University Student Counseling and Career Centre (USCCC)? If not, please read on.
Student Counseling entails in short advice on choosing a course of study, how your study is progressing and study methods at university. Career Counseling entails guidance on CV creation as well as job search and job interview preparation. Special services are available for students with disabilities, learning disabilities or long-term illnesses, entailing options for study or exams. The USCCC psychiatrist offers psychiatric help and cand.psych. students at the Faculty of Psychiatry at the University offer psychiatric services as well. Last but not least, career and guidance councilors offer students advice on personal or social difficulties during studies.
A selection of longer and shorter courses and workshops are available, as are micro-lectures during lunch (Lunch Sessions). The main topics include study methods, time management, goal setting, preparation for thesis writing, job search, exam preparation and anxiety, stress management, self-empowerment and many more.
How do you access all these services then? You can, for example, drop by and see a career and guidance councilor in our open sessions, Mondays through Thursdays, 13:00-15:30, and Fridays, 10:00-12:00. You can also book a session by stopping by or calling us at: 525-4315. Courses, workshops and Lunch Sessions are advertised on Ugla, by e-mail and on the USCCC web- and Facebook-pages.
The best of luck in your studies!
