Smart Study Strategies

Persoon onder stapel boeken

You invest a great deal of time into your studies, but your grades don’t seem to improve. Perhaps you spend too much time reading the material, or have the feeling that you don’t retain much for the exam. If you recognise yourself in this description, then the problem probably lies in the methods you use to study. Perhaps your study techniques don’t quite suit the requirements of a specific course.

This course provides insight into your preferred study methods, and the advantages and disadvantages inherent in those methods. During the session, you will be offered a variety of exercises and tools to help optimise your study methods. Participants can immediately apply the lessons learned to their own study materials, so you can experience which study methods work best for you.
