Personalized learning

Personalized learning is a key principle of our education. It doesn’t mean, however, that you have to do it all by yourself: there are well-defined requirements and learning objectives to be achieved. Moreover, we provide clear instructions. But your study pace and your pathway towards reaching your goals are for you to decide. Every class (only 15 students per class) has its own coach, who helps you accomplish your goals.

Personalized learning is structured in the following four activities:

1. Office: in a spacious, well-equipped room you work either individually or in groups on the learning objectives or assignments of your projects or subjects. During ‘office’ hours, you get to decide what you want to work on. There are lecturers available to ask for advice or an explanation.

2. Lectures: short instruction classes not longer than 30 minutes providing you with information on independent office work.

3. Practice: a 30-minute mini-workshop to train practical skills, e.g. foreign-language or presentation skills.

4. Workshops: duration 2 hours; focusing on personal and professional skills.
