*Overwhelmed by stress because of the upcoming exam? *Guilty every time you try to relax, since you “should have” been studying? *Worried about speaking in public, going on job interviews, or asking someone for a date? *Concerned about your deadlines and your time management? *Long time since you had a good-night sleep? *Spend too much time thinking about what you will, or won't, eat next? *Lost in your responsibilities, trying to jungle work, studies, and relationships?
If your answer is “YES” to some-or all- of those questions, then join us to our new International Students Support Group!
There is a group for International Students of all fields and departments for those who would like to join, share and get practical tools for their students life and its challenges. students support group
"WILL IT HELP ME IF I JOIN?" It is proved that people that have participated in our Support Group for a few months have felt more confident, less lonely, more connected with others and belonging to a group, and they have admitted that they are strong and ready to deal with the challenges of every day life especially as an international student.
WE DISCUSS ABOUT: *What stress is and how to handle it efficiently. *How to better prepare for exams and how to deal best with the actual nerve-wrecking exam day. *How to build skills around time management, procrastination, focus, organisation and planning *Homesickness: how to deal with this feeling of being away from home, family and friends. *How to keep a balance between you student life and your personal and social life. *How to build friendships and stay connected. *How to prioritise decisions and to handle responsibilities of your adult life.
