  • DS4H Graduate school offer three types of multidisciplinary projects: Research projects, Creative Industries projects and INVENT@UCA projects (see below).
  • Multidiciplinary Group projects lead students to develop several transferable skills such as communication, cooperative and teamwork skills e.g. planning, management, leadership and peer support.
  • Multidiciplinary Group projects are accessible to M1, M2, and PhD students.
  • Multidiciplinary Projects have little or no prerequisites to remain accessible for students with different backgrounds.
  • Each semester, you are invited as students to make your choices from a given list of projects. You can choose, in order of preference, up to 3 projects. As best as possible you are then assigned to your first choice of project according to the success of your candidature and the capacity of the project.   
  • You are the one to decide one semester to another what project you wish to conduct, and you’re free to try, to fail and to decide to try something new.
  • DS4H projects are mostly held on Fridays but not necessarily. You are responsible to check the compatibility of the project you apply to with your own schedule.
  • Each project is credited 6 ECTS in your curriculum.
