Student counselling centre


Nøkkelstien 20
9510 Alta

The Student Counselling Centre, administered by the Arctic Student Welfare Organisation, provides a counselling service for Norwegian and international students on campus. Experienced professionals are available to help students cope with the personal and practical challenges of student life. Studying far from home in a foreign country can be particularly challenging. You will be required to adapt to a new culture and different social behaviours and expectations.

Furthermore, structural systems, such as health and education, may be fundamentally different from what you are used to back home. You may face challenges that are difficult to cope with far from family and friends.
