Spark - Your knowledge benefits the world

Íslensk útgáfa hér

Do you want to discover your own potential, strengthen your network and become more competent in utilising your knowledge and ideas to benefit society? Do you want to work with a diverse group of students seeking creative solutions to the challenges we face today, such as climate change and increased well-being for all.

The University of Iceland offers an Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme course for students at Aurora universities. The course is aimed at students in their final year of undergraduate studies or at the masters' level. Participants will gain increased knowledge of today's challenges while working towards joint solutions across disciplines in collaboration with leading supervisors from academia and industry. The students will gain a deeper understanding of their own strengths as well as developing innovative thinking under the guidance of experienced teachers.

The course combines online content, virtual sessions that take place over the semester, and a five-day capstone experience on-site at the university of Iceland in May 2024.
