What’s the content of Studyboost?

This training course will cover all math topics that are necessary to master before your admission to a particular education within Erasmus University. The course consists of two separate parts.

Firstly, you get access to an online self-study programme that allows you to survey your current mathematical knowledge and algebraic skills. This digital learning environment offers you a
tailor-made course in which you can practice parts you don’t master sufficiently and is available 24/7. A big advantage of this system is that you can repeatedly practice all parts until you masterthem properly!

Lastly and secondly, the training consists of lessons given by qualified teachers. They know what the problems might be for students and where students often stumble. These lessons will elaborate on addressing and solving issues that are similar to the challenges and tasks of the deficiencies in mathematics exam (also called the ‘Colloquium Doctum exam of level 1 or 2).
