This study was explorative in nature and aimed at in-depth understanding of the personal resources students use to reach self-defined success. To gain an in-depth understanding of personal resources that benefit students’ performance in the demanding context of honors education, we used qualitative methods.
Becoming successful in higher education demands a lot from students. Considering the Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) model, a model that is also applicable in education because of the similarities between work and study, it is expected that personal resources help students succeed in demanding situations. In this study, we explored which personal resources benefit students’ performance in the demanding context of honors education. Using a preparatory digital questionnaire and semi-structured interviews, we asked 13 honors students of three Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences which personal resources had helped them to achieve success. The results suggest that the personal resources used varied among honors students. The most frequently mentioned resources could be grouped around five themes: self-directiveness, inquiry-mindedness, perseverance, social involvement, and motivation. Especially resources in the themes self-directiveness, inquiry-mindedness and perseverance were perceived as important facilitators for educational success, like passing exams. The outcomes of this study may inform interventions to help students develop personal resources needed to handle high educational demands. Further research is needed to identify the most effective interventions.
