Study skills; the Dutch approach (2 hours) (location Roeterseilandcampus)

Extended workshop:

For you?

Living and studying in Amsterdam will be different from what you are used to and more difficult than expected. How do you study the ‘Dutch way’?

In this workshop, we will discuss (inter)cultural educational differences between the Netherlands and other countries. We will assess various study methods and study skills such as academic reading, time management and planning. Participants will learn how to study more efficiently and effectively within the context of the Dutch educational system.
