Student counselling

Welcome to the Student Counselling and Internship Services

We are here to assist you if you have questions regarding your degree programme and career opportunities, to provide sparring, and if you meet any challenges during your studies.

The student counsellors at Cphbusiness have several years’ experience with student counselling and are well equipped to assist you. We are passionate about providing the best service. One of our most important tasks is to provide support to students during their studies. The Student Counselling and Internship Services are committed to the following principles: respect, equality, independence, openness and trust.

When you are in contact with a student counsellor, you can therefore, among others, expect the following:

  • All student counselling is based on an open dialogue and you make the decisions. The student counsellor can only provide information and act as an active sparring partner.
  • All student counselling is confidential. The student counsellor will not pass on to others information you have given in confidentiality, i.e. we will only contact your professors and/or others with your consent.
  • All student counselling is unbiased and independent. The Student Counselling is neutral and independent.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your studies and we will help you as best we can. However, there are limits as to what we can help with, though we have great experience to draw on to help you further on. We have several partners, which we can refer you to. All conversations and enquiries are confidential.

We have many students at Cphbusiness. In order to assist as many as possible, we have divided our Student Counselling and Internship Services into a centralized and de-centralized department. As such, you will find a local Student Counselling and Internship Services on each campus, as well as a centralized Student Counselling and Internship Services on Cphbusiness Søerne.

Please find out more about our services below.

  • Doubts about which programme to choose?

    Choosing a degree programme is not always easy and perhaps the programme you’ve been accepted into does not meet your wishes and expectations. If you have doubts about whether you’ve chosen the right programme, have a chat with your local Student Counselling and Internship Services.

  • Further education

    With an AP degree you can enter the job market after just a few years. However, if you want to pursue further education, you can apply for a Top-Up degree.

    Learn more about your opportunities for further study and have a chat with your local Student Counselling and Internship Services. 

  • Career services

    Do you have any doubts as to what you can do with your degree? Perhaps  you would like to work abroad or start your own business? Have a chat with the students in Inkubator, cphbusiness’ own innovation organization, run by our students, or visit your local Student Counselling and Internship Services.

  • Failed an exam?

    You have 3 attempts to pass any exam. Please contact your local Student Counselling and Internship Services if you wish to apply for a 4th attempt.

    Please note:

    In the AP programme: if you fail all 3 attempts in your first year exam, you cannot continue your studies at cphbusiness.

    In the Bachelor programme: you must complete your Bachelor programme with your dissertation. If you have not completed all other exams before handing in your dissertation, you cannot complete your programme.

  • Diplomas

    Here you can find information about diplomas.

  • Personal issues

    During your studies, you may need to talk to someone regarding your personal life and certain problems you may have. You can always get in touch with your local Student Counselling and Internship Services and from here get a referral to a professional, if we are not able to help you.

    We can refer you to:

    The Student Counselling Service: an independent organization that can help with issues related to your studies, or social or mental issues. The service is free and anonymous.

    TUBA: professional therapeutic advice for young people between 14-35, who have grown up in households with substance abuse. Chat, call or email counsellors. The service is free and anonymous.

  • Leave of absence

    If you need a break during your studies or become pregnant, you can apply for a leave of absence. If you are on a leave of absence, you are not allowed to follow classes, participate in exams and you may not receive SU. Typically, you cannot apply for a leave of absence until you have completed and passed all exams in the first year of your studies. This does not apply, however, if you become pregnant or are called into the military.

  • Internship

    On all campuses, you will find an internship advisor, who can help you with any questions you may have regarding your internship. Find out more at your local campus.

  • Current events

    We regularly plan events and workshops on various topics.

    All events are announced here, so stay updated on our website.
