The Skills Lab provides study coaching free of charge. You discuss with a trained student (peer tutor) any questions you have about studying. The coaching gives you more insights into your study approach. After the session you will be better able to determine what is not going well yet and what is needed to improve. The study coach can help you, for example, in planning your study and with your time management, how you can read and study efficiently or how you can prepare for your exams. This can help to reduce study stress and increase your enjoyment of your studies.

Before you sign up for a session, please read the information below to find out whether study coaching is what you are looking for right now.
