Dutch term or phrase: Flexstudent
Following on from my previous question re "flexstuderen", the other term I'm trying to nail down is "flexstudent". I suspect the feedback from the former will guide me in determining the solution for this term, but it could work in reverse, too. Hence the posting of this term.

I look forward to your prompt feedback/suggestions.

Cheers,
R.

Explanation:
Being a flexible learning student

However, being a flexible student does mean bringing and maintaining a strong personal commitment to your study. You will need to be disciplined and self-motivated in order to succeed as a ‘flexi’ student. It’s up to you, guided by your lecturer, to independently keep up with the learning materials, readings and online activities as the course progresses through the semester. Developing a good time-management strategy at the start of the course is essential to ensure you set up good study habits and allocate enough time each week to dedicate to your study.

Flexible learning is a principle of practice in formal education, concerned with increasing flexibility in the requirements, time and location of study, teaching, assessment and certification [1]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexible_learning

Flexible learning offers you the option of only paying tuition fees for the courses that you plan to take within the degree programme. On 1 September, a Flexible Learning pilot will be launched for a number of UvA degree programmes.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi, Barend. I searched originally under "flex*" + "studying"/"stud*". I didn't think of "learning" as an option. Thx for the feedback!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Tina Vonhof: Great explanation and refs.
3 hrs
  -> Dank je, Tina.

agree  Jack den Haan: Good research. I would have preferred the use of hyphen (flexible-learning student), but the trend in English nowadays seems to be otherwise. // Het gaat om een samengesteld bijv. naamwoord. Zie bijv. http://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/hyphens.asp .
9 hrs
  -> Dank je, Jack. Mijn gevoel zegt geen hyphen hier, maar ik zou het mis kunnen hebben.// Een keer uitgezocht, het kwam er zo'n beetje op neer: gebruik alleen een hyphen, of geen hyphen, bij dubbelzinnigheid /adjective noun noun: https://tinyurl.com/yc4zlb7m

agree  Natasha Ziada
1 day5 hrs
  -> Dank je, Natasha.

agree  Kitty Brussaard: And with Jack. Strictly speaking, a hyphen is required here to avoid ambiguity: 'students' modified by 'flexible learning' (compound adjective) vs 'learning students' modified by 'flexible' (adjective). / True, the hyphen can safely be left out here.
