A new daily life

You will encounter a different structure to your daily life compared to what you might have been used to before. You will have fewer on-campus lessons and you will be challenged with higher demands of independent preparation for your courses.

Concurrently, you will begin your project work together with your group of fellow RUC-students. It’s up to you and the group to plan your own time and complete the necessary tasks in order to make progress throughout the semester – guided by one of the researchers from your programme.
