Lovende woorden voor VU Amsterdam Summer School

De inmiddels afgeronde VU Amsterdam Summer School was een groot (online) succes met maar liefst 42 VU studenten die deelnamen aan het programma.

Niet alleen werd het goed bezocht, maar ook prima beoordeeld door de studenten:

“With participants coming from different disciplines and countries, the summer school has been a great chance not only to grow personally in an intercultural learning context, but professionally to network and learn about everybody’s different backgrounds and approaches on ethnographic storytelling.”

“I loved the whole experience. I need to mention that i was not expecting to get so much knowledge and friends in so little time. Social activities were interesting and very communicative so that is why i have learned also how to be better at communication with new people. I met so many amazing people with a lot of experiences, different backgrounds,... I would recommend that if you are hesitant about the decision do not be and just sign up because the experience is something that i will never forget it. I would like to say also that the organization of the whole summer online school was excellent.”

“The lecturers were incredibly knowledgeable and were very encouraging of open discussion among the students. The course had a good combination of traditional lectures, workshops and exercises, and videos and animations to supplement materials. Lecturers provided a good amount of related reading to assist our learning, and provided all their detailed presentations/notes taught in the sessions. Difficult topics were well described and the course catered for a varying degree of ability within the students (BSc, MSc, PhD etc). The course itself covered a good range of topics within a large research field (e.g., twin methods, polygenic scores)!”

De Summer School biedt interactieve kleinschalige cursussen op bachelor- en masterniveau. De tweeweekse cursussen beslaan meerdere thema's en worden aangeboden door alle negen faculteiten van de universiteit. Naast de cursussen worden er sociale activiteiten ondernomen.

De VUvereniging heeft deze zomer de VU Summer School gesteund door het beschikbaar stellen van beurzen.
