At SLU, we engage students in some of the most important issues facing the 21st century, such as global warming, the food crisis, and our dependence on non-renewable energy.
The teaching style at SLU promotes critical thinking. As a student, you are expected to question beliefs that are often taken for granted and we also expect you to question what you learn. Debating with classmates and lecturers is accepted and welcomed. SLU’s teaching staff crave academic excellence and are focused on producing a highly employable student body. Communication skills, the ability to work in a team and solve problems, an awareness of the commercial landscape and work experience are just some of the qualities that make our graduates employable.
To strengthen your ability to build a career in an increasingly competitive job market, as a student at SLU you are encouraged to learn through experience.
You study real-life situations, take a hands-on approach to problem-solving, and make valuable contact with the business sector. Lectures, tutorials, laboratory work, fieldwork, group projects, and independent study are just some of the teaching methods used here.
Assessment procedures also vary depending on the course and can include written assignments and examinations, individual and group projects, laboratory reports, and oral presentations. Here at SLU we are committed to developing the internationalization aspect of our syllabus, network, and student experience.
Global perspectives have been integrated into the design, development, and presentation of all programs and courses. We welcome students from all over the world and by offering students the chance to make important international connections, we are increasing our students’ global employability.
