This summer, the thesis boot camp will take place from Monday 6 July to Sunday 30 August 2020. You decide for yourself how many weeks your boot camp takes and which level you take each week. A boot camp week starts on Monday and finishes on Sunday. If you choose to do Boot Camp All-In in a particular week, then you will study with Studiemeesters for five days in that week.

Students make great progress in a short space of time through a series of boot camp weeks. If you want to join us for the final sprint, then sign up for the thesis boot camp!

What does the thesis coaching involve?

Studiemeesters comprises a group of dedicated specialists. We give study coaching to students in higher education (hbo and wo), in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Leiden and Rotterdam. Our mission is to develop students’ talent and motivation to the full, regardless of their age, background and competencies.

The Studiemeesters method
Students who want to improve their performance often experience two challenges: procrastination and lack of knowledge. These two factors reinforce one another, as a procrastinator doesn’t improve and if you’re not so good at something then you’d rather postpone it. So we focus both on your progress in your subject and on your study motivation.

Thesis coaching
Thesis coaching is an individual meeting with your Studiemeesters thesis coach, where you discuss what you’re struggling with. After an hour’s thesis coaching, you know the point you’re at, what you need to do now and how you’re going to tackle it. This helps you relax and focus when you get down to work.

Study day
On a study day, you study from 9 to 5 in the Studiemeesters study hall. The study day supervisor makes sure that you stay motivated and productive. You can ask short questions, so that you don’t get stuck. We check on how efficient your approach is. You learn what your personal pitfalls are and how you can avoid them. This means that students often get more done in one day with Studiemeesters than in a week at home.

Thanks to the combination of thesis coaching hours and study days, our students make great progress in a short space of time. If you want to join us for the final sprint, then sign up for the thesis boot camp!

Doubts about thesis coaching?

We understand that it’s a big decision for you to take and that a lot depends on it. That’s why we’re flexible.

Come and get to know us, with no obligation
First of all, students come along for an introductory talk, where you can feel the atmosphere, tell us what you want to achieve and get advice on the right help for you. An introductory talk is free of charge and there is no obligation. If you decide straight away that you want coaching, then you schedule it there and then. You reserve a place in our study hall for the days you want to work and book appointments with a coach of your choice. But you can also sleep on it and call us back later.

No commitment
At Studiemeesters, students decide themselves how often they want to come. As you don’t have to pay anything up front, buy credits or take out a subscription, you can stop whenever you like. A boot camp week can be cancelled free of charge up to 12.00 on the preceding Friday.

Open and honest
You can ask us anything at all. E-mail us (office@studiemeesters.nl), call us (0207371945), fill in the contact form or just drop in at one of our locations in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Leiden or Rotterdam.

Independent opinions
Students are positive about our coaching. Read the uncensored opinions of our students here.
