Good health and wellbeing are not only crucial ingredients for a good and effective student life, they contribute to a rewarding professional life after your studies as well. Your daily life and the challenges that come with it influence this. It may all go well for you, but sometimes a helping hand can't hurt. That is why we offer you the opportunity to focus on the personal side of professional development in addition to the academic development you are going through. In that context, we offer various (group) activities to support your well-being.
