Need for guidance

As a student it is not every day a party: sometimes you have a lot on your mind or it is difficult to find your way.
Did you know that for any matter - no matter how small or 'innocent' it seems - you can go somewhere? So don't keep it bottled up!

Psychological guidance

Do you experience study-related or personal difficulties? Don't just keep them to yourself, even if it seems minor.
