European Project Semester

AP’s European Project Semester (EPS) trains students to work together, providing tools and competences to realise ideas in a real-world environment in close cooperation with local industry and organizations.

In a European Project Semester, students work together in an international team on a real-life project that matches their area of study and field of interest.

A European Project Semester @ AP consist of the following parts:

-       A number of short intensive & supportive courses, taught by different (Belgian and international) lecturers, to support the project work.

 -       Project work by the participating students, with the aim of developing student initiative and individual creativity. Four to seven students work together in an international team on a specific (multidisciplinary) project while developing their cooperation and communication skills considerably.
