WHY CHOOSE THIS PROGRAMME?

The FASS programme gives you an opportunity to get to know, first-hand, all existing degree programmes in the humanities and social sciences, communication and media arts, business and management, hospitality, tourism and culinary arts. At the same time, it offers a quality study experience for those who want to learn more about society, what people do, how they organise themselves and how they live, play and work together. Throughout, you will improve your critical thinking, communication, research and discovery skills, with lots of hands-on projects and teamwork.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS PROGRAMME?

Our uniquely thought-through programme offers a genuine alternative. It combines typical foundation courses (study skills or English) with liberal arts (such as reasoning or intercultural communication skills) and social science disciplines like psychology, media studies and sociology. It also emphasises learning by doing, with over half of all courses assessed by 100% coursework.
