Study progress and career counseling

Once a student has started the study, a good bond with the study programme and fellow students is crucial for study success. Often in the first six months there are signals that indicate that the student is experiencing problems. An important question is how can you pick up these signals on time and thus prevent early study dropout. This can be done through mentoring and the use of study career counseling, but even with these methods it is difficult to follow all students well.

NOA has various instruments that can be used in the context of the study career counseling. An example of this is the self-reflection assessment that is used as a follow-up to a study choice check or intake assessment

Another instrument is the Study Thermometer. Whilst the intake assessment or the study choice check is usually used at the start of an education year, the Study thermometer is administered in January or February of the first study year, for example in order to give possible study advice.
