About the Student Counselling Service


On this page we provide you with all the information you need in order to know who and what we are. If you are looking for information on how we help students, then just click here



Background and purpose

The Student Counselling Service is an institution under the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.


Our objective is to provide social, psychological and psychiatric counselling and treatment to students at bachelor, professional bachelor and master's level, so they can complete their studies without unnecessary extension, and without unnecessary drop-outs.


Our team consists of psychologists, social workers with psychotherapeutic training, and psychiatric specialist physicians. All of our employees have a duty of secrecy and you are able to contact us anonymously.


Since 2014 we have been cooperating with The Office of SPS and the Board of Education and Quality on developing and providing special educational support (SPS) for students with physical or mental impairments and skill development of those who support the students in their daily life.

The aim of the support is to ensure that students with physical or mental impairments can complete educations similarly to students who do not experience such impairments.

A mental disability refers to diagnoses such as anxiety (e.g. OCD, PTSD), affective mental disorders (e.g. depression and bipolar), schizophrenia and other psychoses, personality disorders, eating disorder, and mental developmental disorders (e.g. ADHD and autism).


Our work is financed by the Danish State and is a separate item on the Annual Finance Bill, i.e. Section 19.35.24.§


Research project

In order for us to offer the best help and at the same time examine the quality of the help we offer,  we started a research project in collaboration with a PhD. Student from the Department of Psychology, Aarhus University in autumn 2014.


The research project investigates:

The extent and nature of the difficulties that the students experience
The benefit the students experience from our offerings

We collect data from:

The 15th of september to the 15th of december 2014.

The 15th of september to the 15th marts 2018.


All students that seek our help will be asked to fill out a questionnaire 2-4 times regarding their difficulties and their experience at the Student Counselling Service.


❶  Just prior to the first counselling session (duration 10-25 minutes)

❷  After the third session – in the case you receive more than three sessions (duration 2-3 minutes)

❸  At the end of the counselling program. If you have had at least two sessions (duration 10-25 minutes)

❹ Follow- up (duration 10-15 minutes)


The answers will not be available to any of our counsellors but only to the research group.


If you have any questions regarding the research project please contact Specialist consultant Majken Mosegaard Svendsen,
