THE WELL-BEING officer IS FOR all the students AT Science & Technology.
At university you are expected to act independently and to look after your own affairs. Especially at the start of a new programme, there are many things that may not be self-evident. Next to new experiences at your study, the new found independence outside of your studies can be overwhelming. It is common that you struggle to find a balance during this phase of your life. Therefore, the University of Twente devotes extra attention to student well-being. Next to extra help on a university level, each faculty has an especially appointed well-being officer to help enhance well-being within their community. This can take the form of events, workshops or leisure activities.
FACULTY ACTION TEAM WELL-BEING
Withing our faculty we have formed a Faculty Action Team (FAT- Team) to involve both study associations and staff around the organization of well-being matters. Every three weeks we come together to talk about well-being, discuss and determine what is needed for students to enhance their (mental) well-being.
WELL-BEING RELATED ACTIVITIES
Next to personal conversations, the well-being officer also organizes different study-related and leisure activities:
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION STUDENT WELL-BEING
The university offers special web pages on the topic of well-being. If you encounter mental health problems or do you know someone who does? Check the student well-being pages or contact your study adviser for advise.
If you encounter any problems during your studies, need extra help in addition to the guidance provided by your study adviser, or if you just want help to develop yourself, the links below may offer extra support and help. Student Affairs Coaching & Counselling (SACC) is offering a range of professionals and services (such as student psychologists, career counselling, confidential advisors, and contact persons) who are independent and not linked to your programme. Be aware that by clicking these links, you will leave the programme’s website: you will be redirected to the page of SACC, UT Language Centre, or the Student Union.
