Contact student counselor

If you are unable to complete your studies as scheduled (on the standard time), contact a study advisor at your faculty. The student counselor can help you set a plan for further study, so you do not spend more time than necessary to recover the lost. The student counselor is also familiar with the regulations and the possibilities and rights you have as a student in such a situation.
