Studying is a privilege, but also a very demanding task. Difficulties with your study course, as well as personal, health or social problems can affect the course and success of a course of study. Exam anxiety, learning problems, social anxiety, depression, illness, money problems, problems in the social environment such as family or friends, etc. sometimes seem unsolvable and no longer manageable.
