From 2008 TalTech offers professional Counsellor service for its students and staff members. The Counsellor service is especially for our international students. But also faculty and staff members are welcomed to get guidance and support how to help students. Counselling for personal issues is also offered.
Students abroad find it sometimes difficult to adjust to a new environment. Common problems are:
- feeling isolation
- missing what is familiar (being home-sick)
- cultural differences with the local culture
- different climate
- language barriers
- and many times lowered academic performance due to these stressful factors and others
Counselling sessions are individual (the person and the Counsellor) and confidential (the Counsellor will NOT disclose any information given, with the exception of physical endanger to oneself or to others). The objective is to listen in a safe and caring atmosphere and to give adequate guidance and emotional support.
Getting an appointment is easy. You can contact the Counsellor and reserve a time via e-mail. Councellor can agree on a day and time at TalTech suitable for both Councellor and Student.
Please make sure to agree with the date and time in advance.
