You have already started to build a new collection of fluorescent pens, your

bought new typexx and your pencils are sharpened. Your summaries are on point and the thickest course you have is already neatly provided with post-its. You're all set. Bring it on!


The stress is starting to strike ... What was the password of that summary folder again ?! Is there enough iced coffee and Redbull at home? Would you still dare to email that one teacher with a question or is it too late? You don't know where your head is and chaos is real. Would shouting really loud help? Or maybe postpone something?

Whether you recognize yourself in the first or second scenario, every student is entitled to a break. to the rescue. We present ...

Blok Break

(Enthusiastic cheers and applause to imagine yourself) Every Monday at 04:00 PM and every Thursday at 08:00 PM we support our students with a livestream via YouTube. These breaks have the ideal length of 15 minutes: just enough to freshen up your head. A Blok Break can be anything: something with music, something funny, something sporty ... Of course we vague to build up the tension, but trust us: it will be worth it! We will kick off the Blok Breaks at the end of this week, so stay tuned ... A lot of success with your exams!
