I am Okay – Procrastination
The sad truth is that we all like to put off important tasks from time to time. Studying, cleaning windows, or doing “Steuererklärung” (tax return) anyway. However, not only such annoying tasks but surprisingly also things that should actually be fun for us. In professional circles, the phenomenon of putting off obligations is called procrastination. Procrastination can be more dangerous than many people realize, especially for student and their mental health.
As part of our “I am Okay” Video Project we show you how to deal with procrastination and when it might be dangerous in an interview with a psychologist of the RWTH.
I am Okay
Life can get hard from time to time. Most people have dealt with uncomfortable feelings of stress, loneliness, anger or sadness at one point in their life. The student life, although filled with ups, can also have its downs, like exam anxiety, procrastination, loneliness, etc. Being a foreign student brings its own challenges to the mix, and knowing where to find help is one of them. That is why we started “𝗜 𝗮𝗺 𝗢𝗸𝗮𝘆”, a YouTube video series about mental health, where counsellors from RWTH share ways to combat procrastination, burnout or exam stress.
How to Avoid Scams
Scams happen quite often and can come in many different forms. Sadly in Aachen we are not exempt from this. In this video we will show you the scams that affect international students the most and teach you ways to identify them.
In case you need help, advice or if you have any doubts about the legitimacy of any company or person you can always contact the International Office, the ASTA, the AV or the police.
Courses of Study Series
Still unsure which course of study to persue at the RWTH? We’ve asked some students from different courses of study to share their personal experiences with us! From the best parts of the course to the worst parts, everything’s been covered. We hope this helps you decide whether you want to join us in studying at RWTH.
Visa Video Series
When you have decided to study in Germany, one of the first steps is applying for a visa – if you are not an EU citizen. It might seem a bit daunting at first but in our Visa Video Series, we try to give you a better understanding about how to apply for a visa, how to get your residence permit and how to renew it.
