Flow in your study life; Create your own successful study hacks

Study: more than just hanging in there!

The past 2 years have been hard, maybe you’ve been extra busy or perhaps there were fewer interesting things to do because of the closed campus. Studying and working from home certainly hasn’t made things more fun, our mental health is under pressure.

High time we did something about that!

RSM has taken the initiative to support student well-being with a new programme to gain more control over your study life; it will give you a chance to feel more connected in these difficult times, by developing (together) smart and creative solutions for stressful (or not motivating) tasks and situations.

Your study life should be a source of energy and enthusiasm, not something that makes you hang in there as long as possible.


Is a toolbox based on scientific research that allows you to design your own daily study life into a better experience: less stress and more flow!

Study-design is done by using study hacks; these are small changes in the way you approach a specific task or situation in your study life.
