How does the Student Challenge Board work for students?

"You can learn a lot from your curriculum, but maybe even more from reality."



Work on real challenges from real companies

On the Student Challenge Board, you can find real challenges from real companies & organisations that you can work on. Challenges are relevant and timely questions from companies on which they need a fresh perspective and your creative ideas. Challenges allow you to test your skills, flex your creative muscles, get in touch with companies & organisations, and test if a certain field of work suits you. Most of all, you will learn new things. Things about yourself, about work-life, and the different areas that might spark your interest.

A different way to learn

Challenges are all about learning from reality. You work on the challenges you like, respond to as many challenges as you want, coming from any field. It's a way to learn how the skills you picked up during your studies work out in the real world. The challenge might also motivate you to develop new skills, explore interesting fields, and meet new people.

Be among the first to experience the Student Challenge Board

We have been working on the Student Challenge Board for about a year now. We have developed it in close collaboration with students like you. Part of our way of working is that we test our service in public. We already did a first round of testing and have taken the learnings into the design. If you use the platform, you will not only get access to interesting businesses but also contribute to the development of the platform. With your input we can make this platform better together.
