Things we believe
 

Special
Special
According to the manual ‘Guidance and care Antillean students in college and university’ of Expertise diversity policy (1998), ‘Antillean’ students may be considered as a specific group in higher education.

 

Fairness
Fairness
All students should be able to have a fair chance to higher education, independent of language barrier, level of study or background.

Development
Development
Deciding to move to the Netherlands to study is proof that students are eager to learn and develop themselves.

 

Dropout?
Dropout?
Deciding to move somewhere else (back home) to continue your study is not the same as being a ‘dropout’.

Tailored
Tailored
Better study results are recorded and failure can be prevented when both the guidance in the Netherlands and on the islands is better tailored to the personal and situational factors.

 

Analytics
Analytics
The basis for a successful academic career is associated with intrinsic motivation and a “winners mentality” among the students themselves .

Identity
Identity
We believe that students should embrace their identity and who they are, because this makes them stronger and stand out among others.

 

Self-reliance
Self-reliance
Central premise of the Student Counselling New Style is caring for, help to foster, and/or cementing the power of autonomy of students in relation to their academic career and life in the Netherlands (social functioning)
