To achieve this, entrepreneurship, creativity, personal and professional responsibility, and global engagement are key focus areas in our study programmes.

Learning communities

Effective learning is not something you do alone. That is why we have adopted the teaching model of the learning community. In our learning communities, students, lecturers and professionals from the industry work together on real-life, complex and current issues in order to contribute to innovation of professional practice and to help solve societal issues. There is time for exploring the subject matter in detail, and for guidance and feedback. 

Opportunities abroad - Global engagement

We consider international experience of great importance. That is why we encourage you to go abroad during your studies for a work placement or exchange programme. Lecturers often have an international background. We think it is important that they participate in international networks. In many cases, lecturers are also active in the professional field in addition to teaching. As a result, you as a student are well aware of what is happening in the international professional practice.
