Study skills

Studying is a skill you can learn. How do you approach your studies? Do you start on time and use the right strategies to process all that information? Or do you need a little help to improve your study skills? Learn about the (online) workshops and apps that can help and who you can turn to for personal support.

Are you having problems with your studies? Always let your study adviser or coordinator know as soon as possible. Your study adviser or coordinator is your first point of contact for study-related guidance and advice. You can turn to them with both practical and personal issues. 

Maybe you have questions about study choices and future career, for example, which direction you should take in your bachelor studies or which master’s programme you should choose? The Career Service can offer guidance. Each faculty has its own Career Service.

Would you rather take part in a group workshop under the guidance of a trainer? There are monthly group study skills workshops available on topics such as effective studying, dealing with exam stress and fear of failure, thesis writing and time management.

In Plexus Student Centre you can find a low-stimulus study room where you can study without distractions. Upon entering, you can hand in your phone and any other distracting items to a volunteer. You can also borrow noise cancelling headphones and privacy screens.

The low-stimulus study room is located in the no-cheating room on the second floor of Plexus. You can just walk in without reserving a spot. The room is open weekly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10.30 till 18.00 hrs.
