About the POPcorner

The POPcorner is there to support you as you find your way through the faculty and your course programme. 


The POPcorner is a place where as a student you can really feel at home and are helped to realize your full potential, so that you can do what you came for: study effectively and perform. The POPcorner will support you in this, e.g.,

  • by helping you with those questions that you don’t know whom to ask; or

  • if you have the feeling you are not being challenged enough, and want more; or

  • conversely, if you think you need more assistance because you are not sure whether you are going about things in the right way.

What can the POPcorner do for you?

  • Help you find your way around the faculty
  • Help you get off to a good start in your study programme
  • Offer support to students of varying backgrounds
  • Offer training courses to improve study performance
  • Offer know-how about the academic world

Students for students

What is so special about the POPcorner is that it is run by staff and students. The POPcorner was set up in close consultation with students of varying cultural and social backgrounds. Why did students want this service? Because tackling your study in the right way and performing well does not come easily to everyone. Many students say they really feel a need for wide support during their years at university and for establishing social contacts.
