Every academic has their own personal experience of working with stress. A full schedule, submission deadlines and coursework to grade can lead to long days at the computer, working weekends and sleepless nights. Through our academic career, we all develop our own coping mechanisms, but the good news is: There are proven ways to deal with this. In this seminar, we will talk about the physiological mechanisms of stress, including causes, triggers and effects. We will look at the basics of self and time management, to bring order to a chaotic schedule. We will also discuss techniques for dealing with stress, on two levels: First, what we can do to raise our resistence to stress in the long term, and second, concrete methods for staying focussed when best laid plans go out the window.


This seminar offers the chance to get to know the basic tools of self and time management, as well as the mechanisms behind stress and techniques to increase resilience to stressful situations.


  • The physiological mechanisms of stress.
  • Understanding my individual triggers and coping mechanisms.
  • Prioritization and planning techniques.
  • Increasing stress resistence.
  • Techniques to use in an emergency.


Be prepared to discuss your own experiences with stress. Are there times of day or times of the week when you are particularly stressed? What techniques do you use to cope when you feel stressed?
