The transition from secondary education to a university college is often quite a big step. Not all students can handle this higher level of independence or the large amounts of learning material and the semester exams.
This is why UC Leuven-Limburg goes to great lengths to provide customised academic coaching.
Academic coaching : how do you manage to process all the subject matter you need to know? How do you manage to acquire all the skills you need to have? Academic coaching helps you with your study approach in all possible ways: study method, tools for studying, concentration techniques and so on.
Personal Development Planning is all about your own choices. After all, at UC Leuven-Limburg, you are in charge of your own study programme. Making choices entails a great deal of responsibility, and we want to help you with making the right choices. Every student has a personal development planner who is available at a number of pivotal moments, such as at the start of the academic year and at the end of examination periods. But he or she is also your contact person at other times.
At UC Leuven-Limburg, it is also possible to apply for a special status. We want to give students with a disability the best possible opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of learning and living as a student. Top athletes and artists are often entitled to a special status as well. When these students obtain a special status, we even develop customised courses for them.
