The AUC programme combines breadth of experience with depth of knowledge. A key aspect is tackling real-life problems and challenges facing today's world. From day one, you are expected to think about the 'Big Questions' in science and society, and learn how to make a meaningful contribution to current debates. Substantial emphasis is placed on the sciences, including interdisciplinary themes such as: Health and Well-being; Energy, Climate and Sustainability; and Life, Evolution, and the Universe. As today's students, but also tomorrow's leaders, you will have to be successful in both cooperating and competing at an international level.
