1OD-M 21. The student demonstrates that he/she can think strategically as an enterprising individual by creating opportunities for him/herself.


The student career trajectory is part of the physiotherapy studies; here the student learns to establish a connection between his studies and the profession of physiotherapist. We are talking about a profession that involves dealing with many professional dilemmas and an academic programme in which many choices have to be made. This demands from the student a learning process in which he learns to organise and plan, take responsibility for the choices he makes, and give shape to the ensuing actions. In this way he learns to give a sense of direction to the physiotherapy studies. In our programme the principle applies that as a student you have primary responsibility for your studies and your career. You are, as it were, the ‘director’ of your studies.

The theme for academic counselling 4 is: 'What did I achieve this year?' and the start of building a professional identity.
