This gallery contains 4 photos.

There’s been already a lot said about the study trip to China with SUDes. For me this term is full of joy and excitement even though the course (Sustainable Urban Dynamics – as a MARK student I have a bit more freedom to choose my courses and thus could take it) is very intense and time consuming.

We usually have a week without classes right before the exams in order to study, so it is a good idea to plan ahead and maybe create a schedule to organize which chapters and exercises you’re doing.

SUDes Goes to Sichuan, China!

Hey hey! I’ll have to be ‘brief’ because I’m jetlagged to death. From October 6-15th, SUDes 2nd years were in Chengdu, Sichuan, China for a collaborative workshop with students from Southwest Jiaotong University. As well as being an amazing work opportunity, it was an incredible experience on its own. The biggest pro for the trip, however, is that it was … Continue reading
