Education

Modern educational approaches

The program is based on problem-based learning (PBL) approach. You will actively acquire knowledge and skills needed for your career prospects, your future. With PBL, you are solving complex, interdisciplinary and real-life academic problems. In small groups of 12 students, you will be guided in the learning process by a tutor, who will act as both subject matter expert and facilitator. The small class size creates a comfortable environment with plenty of opportunities for effective interaction between students and tutors.

Open curriculum

At TISP we give you the freedom to choose your own curriculum. This means you have the responsibility to direct your own education. Depending on your ambition and interests, you can pick from a wide range of courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, neurosciences and various interdisciplinary fields such as biomedical engineering, biobased materials, systems biology and nanomaterials. An academic year at TISP is split into two semesters. Each semester consists of two periods of eight weeks, followed by a four-week project period. During the project period, you incorporate the knowledge and skills you have acquired over the previous sixteen weeks into a single research project.

Online learning

TISP uses online learning to teach students how to work and solve problems online in their future careers.

Internships and academic mobility

One of the fundamental principles of TISP is that every student should have the opportunity to get an experience of learning “on the go” at work or at another University, passing an internship or study.
