- intensive week: 9 - 12 January 2024

Philosophy of the studies
We create knowledge together. There will be some lectures, but mostly we give you tasks and projects for you to learn search for information and share your experiences. This is called co-creation of knowledge.
Take a closer look at your curriculum to better understand your study and learning goals. The individual descriptions of courses include methods, teachers, timing of the course within the academic year, evaluation criteria and exam types.
This information is especially important if you wish to accredit some previously completed Master-level courses, since you need to propose the substitution and discuss the matter with your study counsellor. If you have questions about accreditation, it’s best to send email ahead of time.
