Consultation for study techniques

Individual consultation for study techniques

Good study habits and effective study techniques that really work for you are important for you to succeed in your studies. At the Academic Skills Centre, you can get individual consultation to improve your study techniques. We will give you tips on study strategies that will make your studies easier.

How it works

  • Each consultation session is 45 minutes long.
  • You choose whether you want to have a physical meeting or a digital meeting via Zoom.
  • You will need to bring a notebook and preferably a calendar.
  • You get help to identify the study techniques that suit your study situation.

Make an appointment by email

If you need to discuss your choice of studies, change of programme or adapted study plan, you should book a study counsellor meeting instead.

Study techniques

Studying at a university means taking great responsibility for your studies and managing your time. For example:

  • Establish good habits and routines.
  • Develop your learning strategies.
  • Plan for study sessions on your own.
  • Take advantage of the time before, during and after a study session.
  • Learn effective techniques for reading, remembering and taking notes.
  • Find what motivates you to spend time on studying.

Study planning

  • Write down all lectures, exams and deadlines.
  • Add social activities and private commitments.
  • Include study sessions of an optimum duration.
  • Add regular breaks and recovery periods.
  • At the end of each week: evaluate and draw up a new plan.

Psst! Remember that full-time studies = a 40-hour working week
