Achieve your optimal focus during the exam period with the Online Study Space's hybrid study sessions. The collaborative study sessions, called Study-SOS, take place from 10:00 to 22:00 under the guidance of a student host. The guided sessions are both online in the usual MsTeams environment and physically in the University Library Singel. Starting date is 20 March. Apply now via the online form. 

To prepare you, you will receive a wake-up e-mail half an hour before each study session. At the beginning of each study session, concrete and realistic goals are set on which to evaluate each time. The host provides a distraction-free environment in which you work on your goals in a focused way. 

What a session looks like 

The study session is hybrid, meaning we hold the study session both physically in a classroom and online. Online, the session is a meeting in Teams where all (physical and online) students are on mute and have their camera on. In the classroom, there is a camera, so the students connecting online are also involved in the physical venue.

 The session follows a the study program of the Study-SOS. When it is time to start, the door closes and a sign is placed in front of the door so that other students do not walk in during a study block, but during breaks.
