Online Coaching Center

Would you like to talk to somebody to get a new perspective, to think out loud, to share concerns, or to disentangle a knot you feel you are in? The OCC coaches are ready to talk with you about the questions you have and the goal you would like to achieve. 

About the program

OCC is a student-focused initiative that works with peer-to-peer coaching. This social initiative makes coaching accessible to students who want to develop, discover, and learn. The OCC is part of the department of educational sciences of Utrecht University. The coaching is free of costs, so coaching is available to everyone. Having a coach does not cost you any money.

OCC for Incluusion students

Each one of us develops continuously. Sometimes it is easy; sometimes it’s tough. Sometimes you feel you can do better but you don’t know how. Sometimes you just feel stuck and you want to find the options to get unstuck and find resilience and creativity to move on. We are aware of the fact that having a refugee status can hide ones identity like a mask. One might feel lost, choices seem limited, and the future  might look bleak. By applying or participating in the Incluusion program, you have taken a big step to revive your education life. Incluusion opens the door for you, and OCC accompanies you on the journey of self-regulating and self-development.
