Opportunity Description

The University of Groningen has developed a free online course on “improving your study techniques” to address the skills vital to effective study. Develop effective study skills for life with the help of this course. Learning is an essential part of life; many of us go on to study even post-formal education. This shows that good study skills are vital for all of us. Many, however, cannot develop these skills and struggle to study effectively.

This course intends to change that. In the course, you will learn to become a better student by learning to apply the ‘three-step model’ of studying: previewing, summarizing, and revising. Besides, you will consider your use of time and learn how to make a realistic study plan. You will also learn how to battle procrastination, tackle stress, and stay motivated while studying.
