Study Coach - BScBA (maternity leave coverage)

Geen sluitdatum

The Role 

Your main job is to ensure that students have a good study experience and make good academic progress. You advise students on how best to plan their studies and provide them with the necessary tools to study as efficiently and effectively as possible. The BScBA students start their three-year program around the age of 18 and want to enjoy the pleasant but intense student life Nyenrode has to offer. You help students find a good balance between studying and student life and guide them through this important phase in their lives. The students live on campus, and you are their point of contact when it comes to student counseling on a personal as well as academic level. You monitor their study experience by critically examining study planning, procedures, regulations, and policy issues. You are an important sparring partner for management and for the Examination Board. For Examination Board casuistry, you provide advice to the Examination Board independent of program management, confidentially and from your expertise. Of course, you also take care of the administrative processing of the above.

In this position, you collaborate closely with the study coaches of the other programs.

The study coaches together form a pool and are responsible for organizing Nyenrode-wide workshops on study counseling for all students.
