Appointment with my own personal study coach

16.30 pm

During your time at Fontys School of Communication in Eindhoven you will be assigned a personal study coach. Where possible, a single study coach is assigned for the full duration of the four-year programme. In this way, the study coach is able to establish a close relationship with the student. The study coach tracks the developmental progress of a student and is close at hand to offer constructive advice and support.

The study coach is available to assist students with any study-related problems. He or she offers general support throughout the programme and can refer students to a range of specialist advisors if and when necessary. The study coach is there to facilitate personal reflection, to motivate students, and to prepare them for their graduation. The ability to self-reflect is essential for gaining a realistic insight into one’s natural strengths and weaknesses. Part of the study coach’s role involves discussing a future career plan that will fit the talents and aspirations of the individual student.

Feedback assignment: Dealing with Dutch directness.

8.45 am

In an intercultural classroom some (Western) cultures are used to be bold and blunt in their feedback. This, however, doesn’t mean that they criticise you personally. They only provide feedback on your work or ideas in a more direct and blunt way than you might be used to. In Dutch culture honesty and directness are valued highly, while in other cultures saving face and not embarassing others is more important.

In this short assignment you can experience what kind of situations you may face. And remember: compliments for good work are also very common!
