Study skills; the Dutch approach (2 hours)

Extended workshop:

For you?

Living and studying in Amsterdam and at the University of Amsterdam can be different from what you are used to and more difficult than expected. How do you study the ‘Dutch way’? How can you adapt your study methods? How do you manage to live and study in Amsterdam and still keep in touch with family and friends back home?
In this workshop, we will discuss (inter)cultural-educational differences. We will assess various study methods and study skills such as academic reading, concentration, time management, and planning. You will learn how to study more efficiently and effectively within the context of the Dutch educational system.
