Do you have difficulty making and sticking to a schedule? Why not join the study planning group! The group meets once a week. At this meeting, we discuss how our schedules went over the past week, and where the pitfalls were. During the meeting we also make a new schedule for the coming week, which we then discuss with the group.
The Daily Dutch course is an intensive introduction to the Dutch language and culture. The aim of the course is to give our Social and Behavioural Sciences students and PhD candidates a basic understanding of Dutch and an opportunity to learn more about our culture. At the end of the course you will have a basic knowledge of Dutch and will be able to participate in simple conversations. The level on completion of the course will be A1.
As a student you often have to feel your way to work out how best to tackle your studies. It's a process of trial and error. Do you want to increase your chances of success? There are lots of people lined up to help. A buddy can help you find a successful study strategy that works for you.

Do you want to sweep aside the barriers of your disability or remove the barriers for a fellow student? Request a buddy! The buddy system is for students who cannot always be physically present at the university due to health problems.
The Social Studying Group (SSG) was set up to bring students into contact with each other to motivate each other and study together. Instead of studying in parallel (side by side, but without taking any notice of other), you discuss with each other what you’re going to do, and you can ask each other for input if you get stuck or want a fresh perspective on something. For each session the participants determine what constitutes a good work pace for everyone.
