Study Method at AAU - Problem Based Learning

The study method at Aalborg University (AAU) is called problem based project work, or “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL)”, and is highly recognised both nationally and internationally. UNESCO has placed its only Professorial Chair in PBL at AAU.

Work closely together with your fellow students

Studying at AAU is not about rote learning. Each semester, you will work closely together with a group of fellow students on a large written assignment. You will also follow more traditional instruction, but the group work at AAU ensures that you build a network from the very start of your studies, and that you will not constantly be sitting on your own buried in your books.

The group work adds an academic and social dimension to your study programme and, at the same time, it equips you for the labour market where skills in cooperation are very sought after.

“Aalborg University offers great opportunities to experience project work, as it is a part of each semester program. I believe that the best results can be obtained when you work and explore real-life problems, which is always the case at AAU.”
