You must be very excited about your study-abroad journey ahead. For most of you, this opportunity not only opens up a new knowledge horizon but also helps you to become more mature when living independently in a new country. Have you equipped yourself with the essential skills and knowledge to live and study independently? Transitioning from high school to university can be very challenging because you have to manage and plan your own schedule and study. Besides, university is completely different from high school in terms of expectations and learning approach. Even the independent and self-disciplined students might find it difficult to adjust to the new study and living environment. Research shows that 20-30% of first-year students in the UK dropped out because they struggled to keep up with the heavy workload and high demands of their programme. Setbacks in the first year might make you lose your study motivation and lead to more problems along the road.
Verovia Academy develops the “SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION TO UNIVERSITY” programme to help student equip themselves with the most important skills and knowledge to survive and thrive in your first semester. The programme is FREE because we believe this is essential for all students.
The programme focuses on three main aspects:
1. Academic skills: lessons about Critical reading, Academic writing and Bibliography management will help you build a strong foundation to quickly grasp new knowledge and pass the courses in your first year.
2. General study skills: lessons about Time management, Anti procrastination, Networking, Presentation and Teamwork are essential for not only your study but also your work and daily activities.
3. Life in the Netherlands: important information about Housing, Transportation, Part-time jobs, Healthcare system, Shopping and Leisure activities that will help you be familiar with the country where you live soon, especially in terms of regulations for working part-time, etc. which can be very different from your home country.
