Learn how to study

How best to study a particular subject depends on various factors: the examination method, the content of the subject, the expectations of the professor... In short, there's not just one perfect study method. It is therefore normal if you do not immediately find the right method, or if you have a number of questions. In that case, you can follow our workshops where you get useful tips and tricks and can exchange experiences with other students.

Active and strategic studying

Academic language

When you study at university, you come into contact with a different language than in everyday life. For example, you will have to write scientific papers. Do you not immediately know how to go about this or do you have a number of questions? In that case, you can read these tips where you will receive useful tips and tricks and can exchange experiences with other students.

Structuring and visualizing your academic text

In addition to the workshops, you can also ask any questions you may have about academic language at the Academisch Language Centre (ACTO). ACTO's tutors can give you advice on spelling, the right choice of words or the structure of your text.
