Student Experience for students & alumni

Are you a WUR student or alumnus that would like to contribute to improving our university? Then join our sessions and make a change! During the sessions, students have the opportunity to identify issues they encounter during their studies at WUR and provide possible solutions. With this input, we are able to formulate concrete improvements for WUR by clarifying the needs and wishes of its students.

You can join the following topic:

Personal leadership, responsibility skills and reflection

Are you interested in how your study programme should pay attention to personal leadership, responsibility skills and learning how to reflect? Then we are looking for you to participate in one of the upcoming sessions! WUR believes it is important to develop certain soft skills during your study programme. Therefore, we would like to hear what you think is important in the way this is being taught and assessed.


Are you a BSc student or do you already have a BSc degree from WUR? Do you want to share your views on this topic? Then join one of our sessions in October on Thursday, 12th or Thursday, 26th. The sessions are at lunchtime from 12.00 – 14.00 and include a free vegetarian lunch!

Career services

The university is very curious how you experience the career services offered by your study programme, your study association and WUR's department 'Student career services'. Therefore we organise education experience sessions on November 2nd and November 23rd. In those sessions you can share your experiences regarding the career services offered, can indicate what you miss and what you need. 

The sessions are hosted from 12:00 till 14:00 and include a free vegetarian lunch.

Experience of a period

In November we will organise a few shorter sessions to create an overview of how students and teachers experience an average educational period. What are the main enablers or obstacles for a successful period, what opportunities do you see? The first two sessions will be focused on mapping the setting in which a course is given or followed and the different experiences, and the last two sessions will dive deeper into what is needed to improve.
