What are info sessions, Q&As and WhatsApp-Consultation?

Info session

During an info session a presentation will be held. The presentation will inform you about the current topic. Usually, you also have the possibility to ask your questions about the topic during the info session.

 

Q&A

During a Q&A (short for Questions & Answers), you can ask your questions about the current topic. The room is open so that you can come and go as you please. In a Q&A, no information will be presented. Instead your questions will be answered.
