Quotes from our students

''Theproject was very personal because I was allowed to choose and develop my own challenge'.  

'Normally there is a format or a step-by-step plan that you have to follow in a certain way. Here we were confronted with uncertainty and had to think about how we were going to come up with a solution, which stakeholders we were going to involve.'  

‘I really liked the freedom and equality between teachers and students’  

‘I was always focused on my grade and what the teacher expected of me. This minor suddenly focused on what I now wanted to get out of myself. That was really different"
