Learning guidance

In Learning Consultation, we discuss various study-related topics that many students experience on a daily basis. Using appropriate strategies, we help boost motivation, strengthen concentration and therefore increase work ability. We support you in setting up your own weekly plan and organise your studying. We discuss plans to prepare for exams, presentations or homework. And we help you find solutions for dealing with fear and stressful situations.

  • Study/work organization, time and self management
  • Learning and concentration difficulties
  • Motivation, objectives, postponements
  • Work strategies and techniques
  • Overload, stress management 
  • Exam preparations and/or anxieties
  • Fear of giving a speech 
  • Feeling of not being able to move forward or getting stuck

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

What forms of counseling are available?

The most common form of counseling is still the one-on-one interview between a counselor and the person seeking advice. If you are hesitating to speak to someone directly or prefer to remain anonymous - for the time being, you can also choose online counseling.

You can also register for one of our regular courses and workshops. Some of these group offerings require a personal preliminary talk.
