In the content courses, we look at academic theory, what to study, and the way to study this. We try out different examination formats, the Problem-Based Learning methodology and look at different types of academic sources.
Intro to Europe: focuses on various aspects of living and studying in Europe, different examination methods are introduced and you will practice discussing in an international classroom with students from different backgrounds and English levels.
Research methods: introduces you to scientific methodology and provides the necessary tools for understanding how academic research is set up.
Critical reading: focusses on the way to tackle complex pieces of text, from different academic disciplines.
Mathematics: offers level-based classes supported by an online environment with exercises providing instant feedback. Students are divided into groups with different end requirements depending on your chosen bachelor's programme. Topics range from algebra and equations to differentiation and integration (amongst others).
In the fourth period, students are divided over different “Intro to” courses depending on their chosen bachelor's with content ranging from introductions into Economics, Law, Health, Sciences and the Humanities.
In the last period, you tackle a Research and Reading project in small teams. The projects are based on the content of your final course and the skills practiced during the skills training periods.
