Self-Management as a Basic Skill for Succeeding in University

[Translate to English:] Service_2

The focus of the Student Counselling Program in the second half of the semester is emotional self-management. When we are attuned to emotional compass, we can use that energy for instance for creative problem solving and constructive and effective actions. Emotions also allow us to clearly sense where our boundaries are and when we should say No. That doesn't sound so bad, does it? The question is: how to learn that?

In May, you have the opportunity to participate in online talks and face-to-face workshops in German and English on the topic of emotional self-management and explore both theory and practice with us.

Before we share our May schedule with you, here are a few questions as an invitation to self-reflection:

  • How good is my emotional self-management?
    (0= quasi non-existent, 10=black belt in emo mgmt).

  • In what situation do I get upset the quickest?

  • What kind of mood am I in when learning and organizing my (student) life comes easily?

Peergroup | Studying with kid(s)

[Translate to English:] Service_3

Establishing an everyday life where both family needs as well as studies and/or work have enough space is essential for having a good quality of life.

In order to promote a healthy family-work-study-life balance, WU Vienna is constantly working on the development and implementation of offers that aim at simplifying the compatibility of family and university life.

Are you pregnant? Or do you already have one or more children, are you a single parent, part of a patchwork family and studying at the same time? Regardless of the family constellation, you are probably familiar with the numerous challenges that studying at the same time as being a parent can bring.

The Student Counselling Program offers the opportunity for students with child(ren) to exchange ideas, network and strengthen each other in order to master future challenges together and in a more empowered way.

You can sign up here for the upcoming peer group meeting.

When:                 Monday, 17 May 2022, 9:30 – 11:30 AM

Where:                Online via Zoom or outdoor Prater picnic if sunny

Facilitators:        Christine Leitl-Kovacic & Niklas Zierl
