Effects of goal-setting and life crafting interventions on study success

In this PhD research, first-year students from sixteen study programmes at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences take part in interventions aimed at increasing their study success and well-being. The interventions consist of writing assignments that help students find their life goals and make them concrete so that they have more focus and are better able to resist temptation.
