Enrichment Programme

We want to awaken our students’ curiosities. We want to expose them to as wide a spectrum of subjects as possible so that they can discover new areas of interest.

“Enrichment” is clearly an important and permanent part of our overall study plan. In addition to our wide academic offerings, we provide students with a great deal of extracurricular opportunities:

  • Meetings with experts from various scientific fields, cultural figures, artists, witnesses of historical events and inspiring entrepreneurs;
  • Workshops;
  • Study tours;
  • Internships;
  • Volunteering placements;

 

The Friday Enrichment Program (FEP) is comprised of weekly events that complement the academic curriculum. Students participate in targeted workshops and lectures, welcome special guest speakers and attend theatre performances and exhibitions. These are done to give them a wider perspective regarding the topics discussed in lessons.

Here are some examples of past Friday enrichment events:

  • A meeting with Halina Birenbaum, Holocaust survivor, writer and translator – an extraordinary chance to view history through the eyes of someone who participated in it, giving students access to a unique and unfamiliar perspective on historical events.
  • Workshops focusing on the United States presidential election campaign and the election itself – a deeper look into the practices and politics of one of the year’s most important events.
  • Theatre and cinema – performances attended alongside study of the original works yielding material for class discussions and different interpretations of the same work.

Entrepreneurship Programme

Project work as a part of our originally developed Entrepreneurship Programme.

Entrepreneurship can turn you into leaders. It transforms you into employers rather than employees and helps you create successful, independent lives through prosperous enterprise.

The truth is that the traditional model of getting a university degree followed by a stable job and a steady progression up the career ladder doesn’t always happen these days. Population increase, economic crises, globalization, decreased earning power and dynamic employment markets mean you really have a daunting task in the job market.

The main objective is to develop participants’ entrepreneurial skills and behaviour. Classes are designed for those individuals willing to utilise and further develop their own creative potential and as a consequence to grow and further develop their current and future opportunities. Entrepreneurship is a practical concept. That is the reason we designed classes based on case study methodology and interactive team work activities exploring the diversity of participants’ background. Models and framework derived from global best practices provide insights leading to sustainable learning.
