What is Guided Studying?

During the guided study sessions, you study in a group with support from student hosts and specialists. The hosts are trained by student counsellors and student psychologists. The specialists are experts from the Writing CentreExternal link, Methodology Shop, thesis coaches, or information specialists from the Library. Guided studying helps you plan your tasks and start your study day. Studying together provides motivation and prevents procrastination. The sessions contribute to improving your study results and meeting deadlines.

Four variants:

  1. AD(H)D-friendly study sessions
    Tuesday to Thursday, 13:00 - 18:30 
  2. Exam sessions
    During exam periods, we offer a focus boost for ten days. From 10:00 to 22:00, including weekends.
  3. Thesis sessions
