Improve your Skills
The key to become a successful graduate is not only to build solid theoretical and methodological skills during your years at the University. It is equally important learning how to collaborate with co-students and apply your skills to open-ended real-world problems.
The AAU PBL Model

This approach has reached enormous popularity all over the world. The focus is on learning through investigating real world problems. The key philosophy may be expressed by an old Chinese proverb:

Step back and I will act”
