All ears

All Ears is an initiative that provides a listening ear for students. For most students, their student time is a period in which major changes take place, a time when they are confronted with existential questions and/or a formative time in their lives. You may find yourself struggling with problems or questions that require understanding and a “listening ear”. It can be a great help just to be able to talk to someone outside your own circle, e.g. to an All Ears worker. All Ears workers are not students themselves, but they are in close contact with students through their professional or personal background. Hence they have an intimate knowledge of the kind of problems “being a student” entails. These talks are low-threshold and without obligation. You can drop by without an appointment. Everything you discuss remains completely confidential. For more information, click here
