What would make an student perform well at UCG?
In general the students that perform well have broad or/and interdisciplinary interest, like being challenged academically, enjoy group and project work in an international community and want to make a meaningful contribution to the world around them.
What would make a student at UCG a happy student?
This partially depends on the student. The ability to shape your own academic programme and the amount of extra-curricular activities available mean there is no single template for a happy student. There are students at UCG involved in athletics, the student organization, social committees, charity work etc. There are also students that gain their inspiration from taking on academic challenges. This is up to the individual student.
