About the Course

The course has three main parts:

The Winter School (14-18 February 2022 in Granada): The Winter School in Granada brings together 6 students from each of the 7 Arqus universities. The aim is to equip the students with interdisciplinary research ides, skills and resources to develop group research projects in the areas of diversity, interdisciplinarity and social challenges in each Arqus city. 

The challenge-based learning programme: Following the winter school, students form research groups at their home universities, to conduct research projects over the semester in collaboration with local institutions. 

The student-led forum: 6 students will join in a student-led forum facilitated by the Arqus alliance, where they will work together with students from the 6 other universities. 

The principles of the educational approach are:

  • challenge-based research
  • interdisciplinarity
  • student leadership and citizen engagement
