Join the webclass Global Responsibility & Leadership

Sign up for this fun and active webclass that has been valued by followers with a 8.8 and gives you a first taste of what studying Global Responsibility & Leadership (GRL) can look like. During the four weeks of the webclass, you will be introduced to a variety of academic disciplines and lecturers, that are part of the first year of the GRL programme. The disciplines that are addressed are: Politics, Global Health, Earth System Sciences and Psychology. Each webclass will explore one of these disciplines, but the common thread throughout the programme is the link to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

Every web class starts with an introductory e-lecture and throughout the four weeks you will complete various readings and assignments. The webclass is offered in English and the workload is approximately 3 hours per week.

Student Testimonials

‘Hi, I’m Thies and I did the webclass last year. For me it was an important step in my process of exploring what I wanted to study. Even though I had very little time during the week because of other school projects, I still managed to finish the webclass in a good way. After all the webclass confirmed to me that I wanted to study Global Responsibility & Leadership, and here I am!’

- Thies, 1st year GRL student

'Hi, my name is Tabio and I did the webclass during my time abroad. It was very nice and doable: although I had little time and finished one assignment late, I could still hand it in and finish the webclass successfully. Additionally, I have a good idea now of the broadness of the programme and have a feeling for my own level, thanks to the detailed feedback.'
