Studying in an applied bachelor’s degree is quite different from other lectures I’ve taken in university. At the ITHQ, the courses are interactive. Professors put us in real-life situations and push us out of our comfort zone. This allows us to experiment, to debate, to see what works and what doesn’t. To learn to think for ourselves. Just like in real life! To me, this is the best way to learn and is one of the great strengths of this program.
