Staff and (underrepresented) students from the University of Leiden Social Science Department have worked in partnership to form POP-corner, a physical meeting place where activities to enhance underrepresented groups’ success in HE are based. Students and staff co-design and implement activities to support students to navigate university life and develop study skills.
The Pre Academic Programme (PAP) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is a new programme of summer courses aimed at first generation students (140 per year). The programme helps student navigate university life with practical skills (e.g. academic writing, critical thinking) and fosters a sense of belonging and self-awareness.
