Learn what works for you

In this training, you will discover what is expected from you as a WUR student. You will gain more insight into your study approach and will learn what works for you, and what does not help you.

You will get to know different study techniques and strategies, learn how to prioritise and to apply the basics of time management. In addition, we will give attention to taking exams, dealing with procrastination and stress.

  1. Wageningen University / Dutch culture, expectations in the Academic Education System, plan your work
