epsProjectsx308Eu­ro­pean Project Se­mes­ter (EPS) is a pro­gramme of­fered by 16 Eu­ro­pean uni­ver­si­ties in 12 coun­tries through­out Eu­rope to stu­dents who have com­pleted at least two years of study.

EPS is a mix­ture of “Supportive (= project re­lated) Courses” and project organized/​problem based learn­ing. Stu­dents work in in­ter­na­tional and in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams of 4–7 stu­dents on their projects. All teams consist of at least 3 different nationalities and of students with at least 3 different study fields. All 5 projects (edition spring semester 2017) are done in co­op­er­a­tion with com­mer­cial busi­nesses, local in­dus­tries and/or civic organisations. Stu­dents learn to learn and to take re­spon­s­abil­ity for their learn­ing and their project work and they de­velop their in­ter­cul­tural com­pe­tences, their com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, their language skills and their interpersonal skills.
