Are you passionate about people and interested in different disciplines and cultures? Do you aim high and have what it takes to make a difference? Are you ready to shape the future? Do you have an open mind? Do opportunities and challenges trigger you to do more?

STAR-track is a multi-disciplinary exchange programme in English taking place during the autumn semester.

Team up with students with a different cultural and study background. A STAR semester consists of a total of 30 ECTS, combining 15 ECTS professional skills in your study field with 15 ECTS future proof skills of your choice.

How does it work?

First choose around 15 ECTS professional skills in your study field:

Combine these with 15 ECTS future proof skills of your choice:

  • work on projects and cases in multicultural and multidisciplinary teams
