Learning Communities: "A great opportunity"

Marieke Zwaan and Elisa Labbas both participated in a Learning Community this year. Together with fellow students and professionals they dived deep into an issue that had their personal interest. Marieke: "You look at totally new aspects of a certain issue; it's very different from regular study activities." Students in LC's can gain more insights and relevant skills additional to their curriculum. Elisa: "It's a great opportunity".

This week, a Learning Community devoted to new business developments in Africa started. When participating, you study these developments in detail and find out more about the contrast between fast moving industrial developments and the attempts to set up and start (industrial/economic) development.

In the new academic year 2017-2018 you can engage in several new learning communities. We expect to announce the new topics by June, so keep an eye on the Student Portal...
