9 Student Counselling
Students and prospective students have the right to student counselling/study information. According to the Higher Education Ordinance (HO chapter 6, section 3) students have the right to student counselling and vocational guidance. Institutes of higher education should also, according to the Ordinance, make sure that requisite information is made available for those who intend to begin undergraduate studies. Umeå University has decided on aims and guidelines for student counselling. The responsibility is divided into central and programme/ department student counselling.
