Student Counselling Services

We offer support whenever you need someone to talk to about studies or life in general. Our services are offered by a student counsellor, university chaplain and university deacon. All communication is confidential. The University also offers study and career counselling services.

Student Counsellor

Dalarna University offers student counselling services to both students and teachers. Our student counsellor can attend meetings between students and teachers when, for example, conflicts arise relating to group work or when students fail the placement (VFU) component of their programme.

Contact the Student Counsellor to talk about stress, anxiety, low self-confidence and anything else that is affecting your study performance.


Email to make an appointment to meet the Student Counsellor. There are no drop-in times. Please provide a telephone number where you can be reached during the day, and do not include any sensitive information in your email.

Naturally, anything you share with the Student Counsellor is held in strictest confidence.

Study and Career Counsellors

See our webpage entitled Jobs and Careers for contact information and other work-related information.

Student Chaplain

The Student Chaplains are available to all students and staff at DU.

The Student Chaplains are from the Church of Sweden and are employed by the Church to be a resource for students and staff at Dalarna University. The Church of Sweden stands for the Christian tradition; however, you can contact us regardless of your faith. We in turn can help you find somebody from your faith with whom you can talk.

The chaplains are there to listen to anyone who requires help, and all information is held in the strictest confidence.
