Facilitated by Student Training & Support



The Corona crisis turned our lives upside down. Continuous online studying, hardly meeting your friends and family, being alone in your student room, or moving back with your parents. These changes cause many questions to arise: How to stay sane? How to maintain a good study routine? How to make new friends when you’re new in Wageningen?In Heart-to-Heart, students can have a conversation with an experienced life coach. Topics that can be discussed range from anxiety to motivation (or the lack of it) to loneliness. Nothing is taboo.

A conversation with a good listener may just take a load off your mind in these challenging times. With Heart-to-Heart we offer short consultations (max 3 appointments).

Surf Your Stress Programme


Stress comes in waves; everyone experiences periods of stress, and that's okay; it's part of life and drives us to greater achievements. Dealing with stress is a bit like learning to surf big waves. Of course, you get out of balance every now and then. You fall into the water and get pulled under. Normally, you will quickly surface and climb back on your board. On to the next wave. But, how different does that feel when your complaints become chronic. The motto of Surf your Stress is "Learn to balance & ride the waves" and we would like to help you with that.

On the webpage of Surf your Stress you will find more information about:* What is stress?* Symptoms of stress* Causes of student stress* What can I do myself?
