Among others through:
- A range of extracurricular activities on top of your regular curriculum. Think, for example, of participating in or organizing network meetings in which current change dilemmas from the professional practice are introduced and discussed, theme meetings around the Sustainable Development Goals, or participation in sustainable social projects such as ecological urban agriculture for the underprivileged.
- The intensive guidance of our team of lecturers from different professional and cultural backgrounds and our strong focus on research.
- An innovative way of assessment in which we focus on learning and development of professional knowledge and skills, rather than on just taking tests or giving grades.
Every semester you work on major challenging social change issues on the themes of water, energy, vitality and food. Through the projects you learn to think critically, make reasoned judgments and solve problems. The activities you perform and the project products you create are part of your semester portfolio. Your portfolio will be given continuous feedback by your lecturers and professionals. Based on all the feedback and supporting documents in the portfolio, you show that you have developed the requested knowledge and skills at the end of the semester. The final assessment is based on the entire development you have completed during the semester and your portfolio. As a result, there is no standard knowledge test at the end.
Because you have followed this intensive programme, employers will be very pleased to employ you. Would you rather do a master’s programme first? In most cases, you do not have to follow a pre-master but you are immediately admitted to the master of your choice.
