This year marks the start of the Bachelor College,
a complete redesign of our education program.
We will give our students everything to make them fit for their careers. There will be in-depth courses on specialized subjects, but students can also develop themselves more broadly. There will be more freedom to choose, but also more responsibility. Our staff is prepared, there’s even a new building (MetaForum). So we’re fit for the future!
