Individual support

Social and psychotherapeutic consultations are available to students and doctoral students.

  • Do you feel demotivated, isolated, depressed, anxious?
  • Do you have problems related to your studies or finances or other kinds of personal problems?
  • Are you in need of accommodations for your studies?
  • Are you facing difficulties and need someone neutral to talk to?

If you do not know which consultation to contact, do not hesitate to ask for an initial interview with the Social consultation or to refer to the list of difficulties, advice and contacts.

The EPFL Social Consultation offers students and PhD students individual, solution-oriented advice and support.
