Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Learning activities

The course is run as a project. In mixed-nationality teams you will prepare and present several assignments on chosen and/or assigned topic(s) on material as covered in lectures and specified in assignment instructions. You will use various sources and multimedia (e.g. newspaper and magazine articles, films, documentaries, interviews on YouTube), as well as conduct interviews to gather information.

The interactive teaching methods will enable you to develop your research, critical thinking, presentation and writing skills. You are encouraged to participate in discussions and to argue and defend your position on issues with other students.

Besides this, you will also write a personal reflection report of approximately 600 to 750 words.

Extended 6 EC version

For students who need 6 EC in order to transfer their course back to their home university we offer an opportunity to acquire an additional 2 ECTS with our special extended version. This means you will attend the two-week course and, after finishing the course and returning home, work on the extra assignment under online guidance of one of our lecturers. You can hand-in your assignment up to 4 weeks after the course ends (by e-mail).
