Group sessions

Aiming for a triple-win situation, we are organizing group sessions about specific study skills: you can share ideas and experiences, you will learn from your fellow students and the student advisor will add individual advice. The session will allow enough time for individual questions and answers, and you will also experience the power of sharing experiences and inspiration.

Study skills

Planning / organizing
Needless to say that planning and organizing your study well is a necessary skill to have, but what does a proper (read: realistic) study schedule look like? How can you learn not only to create one, but also stick to your schedule? What is your pitfall when it comes to planning your studies, and which strategies can you come up with to overcome these pitfalls? Together your will discuss what does and doesn’t work, and what find out what makes planning your study easier.

Sessions: Tuesday 16 November & Tuesday 7 December | 9.00 – 10.00
Sessions: Monday 29 November & Monday 20 December | 11.00 – 12.00

Exam preparation
How come you always end up with too little time to prepare for exams properly? And when you are prepared, that you still feel totally insecure about it? In these group sessions we will investigate what an ideal way to prepare for exams looks like, and how you can work your way towards it.

Sessions: Monday 22 November & Monday 13 December | 13.00 – 14.00
Sessions: Tuesday 30 November & Tuesday 21 December | 11.00 – 12.00

A certain level of stress keeps you alert and going, but what if stress is getting in the way of enjoying studying? What makes you stressed, and how have you been trying to deal with it before? Together we will explore different triggers for stress, how to recognize them, and share experiences about them. It’s all about investigating what you need to handle stress more efficiently and what you can learn from others experiences.

Sessions: Monday 22 November & Monday 13 December | 11.00 – 12.00

Everyone does it, and everyone feels horrible about it: procrastination. Gaining insight in why you do it, and what you need to feel less tempted to do so, is one of the aims of the group sessions. Through sharing experiences and tips you will discover what you need to tackle your procrastinating behaviour.

Sessions: Monday 22 November & Monday 13 December | 15.30 – 16.30
Sessions: Thursday 2 December & Thursday 23 December | 13.00 – 14.00
