Course Description
- How can I get the most out of my education?
- What do I need, to finish my studies successfully?
- How can I reduce/manage my daily level of stress?
- What do I want to achieve during my time as a student?
- How can I have endless energy to achieve my goals?

If you are looking for the answer to some, or all, off these questions, this is the course for you!

What can you do to ensure success, happiness and direction throughout your studies? During this course, students will look into consciousness and personal development. With both theoretical explanations and practical exercises, different aspects of consciousness and personal leadership will be explained. Students will set their own goals at the beginning of the course, making sure that their learnings will also have a positive effect on their (future) studies. Exercises will be done both during the course and in-between course days, making sure that students learn how to apply personal leadership in their own lives right away.
During these five days we will spend just two course days within the university. Students will all get a 1 on 1 coaching session to ensure all their personal questions and challenges are answered and handled. These will take place in an online environment. The last course day will take place in a beautiful venue outside of UM, close to the inner-city library. During this day students will discover how a change of your environment can influence your life and capabilities. On this day they will also present the course assessment, in which they will look back on their goals, achievements and which will show the progress they´ve made throughout the week.

After this course you will have:
- Direction to finish your studies successfully.
- Knowledge of consciousness and personal leadership.
- New goals for your academic year, and enough knowledge to achieve them.
- Clarity on how and why you will finish your studies.
- The ability to take control of your level of success.
- The ability to manage your level of stress during your studies.
