Who is Study Guidance for?Student counseling is suitable for full-time and part-time students who follow a university, HBO, or MBO study program who have difficulty studying for a variety of reasons. For example because of dyslexia, AD (H) D, anxiety, perfectionism, autism, or a (chronic) illness. But also for students who ‘just’ have trouble keeping to a schedule, or often postpone and evade studies, have difficulty concentrating, or have difficulty with writing. Student counseling is also suitable for students who want to study more efficiently and want to graduate faster, for example because they already work next to their studies.
What does student counseling mean?We offer support for everything that has to do with studying. For example, we help with planning, and dividing assignments and learning materials into manageable blocks. We also look at the study behavior, and how it can be adjusted so that the student studies better and more efficiently. We learn skills in the areas of:
- Time Management
- Disc skills
- Concentration problems
- Studying efficiently
What does a program of study guidance look like?As described above, tutoring is tailor-made. Broadly speaking, a trajectory follows the following steps:
Application. When we have received your request, we will start immediately. We look for the most suitable tutor for you and link you to each other. Introductory meeting. Once linked, you have a free introductory meeting with the study counselor. What are you against? What would you like help with? The supervisor then explains to you how they can help and gives an idea of what the supervision might look like. Arrange. If you have decided to want to continue with the associated study counselor, you can immediately make your first appointment. How often you agree depends on your wishes, but it is important to meet regularly, for example every week for an hour. Often we start more intensively, and after a while we check with the student whether it can be less often or less. Accompaniment. Together with your study counselor you make a plan, you learn ways to study more efficiently, and you learn study skills. Evaluation In between you continue to evaluate together. Are you on schedule? Do you need to adjust your schedule? Which study methods do and do not work for you? Based on this you will make adjustments together with your supervisor. Reduce. The goal of student counseling is to learn skills so that you can continue as much as possible yourself. With your supervisor, you gradually see whether you can reduce student counseling and continue to work independently. To what extent this can of course depends on your situation and wishes.
