REC H1.01

For you?

Under the belief that 'the worst is yet to come', we tend to push challenging tasks ahead of us. Some tasks appear so formidable that fear of failure or perfectionism can swiftly dominate, whether as a habit or a coping mechanism.

Yet, avoidance is usually not the best strategy. That's why we have crafted a structured study, breaks, and reflection programme to aid your concentration. Our trained student hosts lead sessions that teach you to complete tasks rather than delay them. 


  • 13.00 – 13.45 Training by a psychologist to tackle procrastination
  • 13.45 -  18.30 Study session with trained host to get those tasks done (Pomodoro)
  • 18.30 – 19.00 free dinner together (for REC participants only)

To start this special edition on the right foot, we provide training on recognising and tackling procrastination. In the subsequent study session, we will help you finish your delayed tasks using the successful Pomodoro method. Trained student hosts lead the sessions and monitor your goals to help you maintain concentration. 

Hybrid: choose between 2 in-person locations or join online

The whole event is a hybrid one. You can attend the entire programme at Roeterseiland, UB Singel or online. The psychologist will be present at Roeterseiland. At UB Singel, you'll follow the session via a live stream. At both physical locations, a trained student host will lead the study session.
