A guide to entering a period of study

1 March 2024 – Researchers within the EMPOWER FOR 21 project have prepared a special guide titled “Life Transitions” for students starting their studies, available in the Slovenian language.

It is the first guide of its kind in the Slovenian higher education sector, providing information on topics such as time management, relationships, sexuality, addictions, etc. Students will also find descriptions of the most common challenges and hardships typical of this period and ideas on how to deal with them effectively.
