Workshop Reorientation on Study Program

Are you a first year student considering switching to another study program? Whether you are having doubts about your choice or whether you have already decided to stop studying at Tilburg University, this short workshop will prepare and support you in choosing a new study program.

This workshop will help you reflect on both your education and your choice.

What will you learn?

Upon completion of the workshop, you will:

  • know how to choose a good study program for you
  • know what it is that you need to do differently
  • know what you are good at
  • know what you are interested in
  • be aware of things which need extra consideration

Method of training

During the workshop, you will investigate your competencies and interests. You will also examine which criteria are important for you when choosing a program. This will be done through assignments; you will be actively involved!

After the workshop you will complete an online “degree-based career survey”. The results of this questionnaire will form the basis of the follow-up interview between you and the career coach. During this interview, you will determine what steps you can take to get your study prgram and your career back on course. You can also discuss with the coach what you need and want from a program, and how you can direct your efforts towards this. In sum, this interview will focus on what you need in order to make an informed choice, and show you how you can approach this process.

Where this is necessary and useful, you can plan one or more follow-up appointments with a career coach in order to formulate a plan of action. In addition to providing information when needed, the career coach has a mainly supervisory role. The action you take is up to you!

Please contact the relevant department / organization for specific questions about registration or deregistration, student finance, and the contents of degree programs, since these matters are not dealt with during the workshop.
