GET TO KNOW AAU'S ACCLAIMED STUDY METHOD
Are you into collaborating on tasks and assignments?
At AAU, students work extensively in groups with a practical approach to theory. Groups typically consist of 4-5 students, and write larger projects together each semester.
This kind of team work requires compromises, and you learn a lot about cooperation. The model is called Problem Based Learning (PBL) and is internationally acclaimed.
If you work better on you own, it is also possible to go solo. It is not a requirement at AAU that you do project work in groups, but keep in mind that our study method is based on it. Read more about the PBL model and AAU's study form here:
