DON’T BE ASHAMED OF DOUBTING YOUR STUDIES
It’s completely normal to have doubts about your studies. A majority of students will sooner or later reach a point where they question their current study path.
These feelings can be brought on by a lack of motivation or interest in the curriculum, a general feeling of doubt when thinking about your studies, or – particularly for international students – feeling like you don’t really fit in yet. Regardless: you are not alone!
Doubt is sometimes accompanied by shame and dread, but it doesn’t have to be. At NEXT STEP niederrhein, we are trained professionals who can help you with one-on-one coaching, workshops and lots of information on these pages to help you get your bearings.
DOUBTS ARE JUST BRIEF STOPS ON YOUR JOURNEY
Earning a degree is a good first step to a career path. But there are other ways to land a career, ways that are open to international students, too. If you have strong doubts about your current study path, think of it as an opportunity for deep, meaningful reflection.
NEXT STEP niederrhein can help guide you in a neutral and open-ended way.
We are here to listen. Together we can run through alternative paths, seek out fresh ideas for your next step, and pinpoint other professionals who specialise in specific issues you may have. The goal is to find a career path that resonates with you. It doesn’t matter if that path takes you through a university or not. What matters is finding your path.
