This conference was organised by the European First Year Experience Network together with the Plantijn Hogeschool University College in Antwerp, Belgium.
This year’s central theme was:
Appreciating & Empowering Students’ Talents
year thousands of students across Europe jump into higher education.
Thousands of these first year students take this big leap forward
successfully every year.
In this fifth edition of the European
First Year Experience Conference we will explore what makes these
students succeed. We share our findings on how we can reinforce the
students’ strengths and what we can do to support all of our students
to experience a golden year as an important corner stone for the rest
of their future. As an institution of higher education we want to
develop our students’ talents in an appreciative way, in order to
support them to accomplish their first year of higher education and to
maximize their further chances for a successful career.
