After an amazing summer, it’s time to take a deep dive into student life! Studying is more than just collecting your diploma in the end. This period is life-changing, you will become independent and determine your own direction in life. The StudentSuccessCentre encourages you to get the best out of yourself, and be as successful as possible. We offer several options to navigate on your way. For example, take a free course and learn to balance your study load, yourself or your budget. Visit the student living room Centrum Perk. For all general questions you can turn to Student Info. In case of personal circumstances our student counselors are available and we have study choise advisors if you have any doubts. Find us: StudentSucces at
