Graduation support (online group)

continuous graduation support group

Feelings of uncertainty about your graduation are part of the graduation phase. But if it’s too much to handle, and it becomes too big a challenge for your actual graduation, the Graduation support group is there to help. Good to know, the activities of this group are currently online only.


If you encounter obstacles in the progress of the final phase of your graduation, or if you are unsure about what is expected of you, your actual graduation might seem far away. Because you’re studying independently during the graduation phase, you obviously have less contact with fellow students and teachers than during previous stages.

The Graduation support group offers:

  • Contact with fellow students who are in a comparable situation
  • An incentive to engage
  • Regularity and structure

Date and time

This support group is a continuous one, on Tuesdays, from 09:30 to 10:30.

The group is also offered in Dutch (Afstudeergroep), on Wednesdays and Fridays.
