Platform Student guidance - small deliberation


During meetings of the small deliberation, the agenda for the platform Student Guidance is discussed.  

Topics on (non-subject-related) counselling of (prospective) students in the field of study choice, study career and study progress:

  • Quickly learn from each other (and learn and be helpful to each other) what is going on
  • Being able to respond efficiently and effectively to what is going on within faculties and services
  • Being able to respond efficiently and effectively to what is happening at ‘UT level’
  • Being able to respond efficiently and effectively to national issues
  • Passing on information
  • To be able to act more jointly as (parts of the) chain
  • Being able to position the Platform more clearly (inter alia for the benefit of the student)
  • Expressing what we, the Platform members, encounter / have to deal with: signal function, also UT wide
  • Identifying bottlenecks / developments from the field (internal, external) and advising on possible UT-wide solutions
  • Advising on UT policy intentions with a view to UT-wide implementation
  • Coming to (an advice on) joint (UT-wide) processes, procedures and working agreements, in which services and faculties work together
  • Testing the feasibility of procedures
