VU Projects

University-wide projects affect many parts of teaching. They have their own funding and separate project leaders. Examples of these projects are:

  • 3D@VU – 3D is the location at the campus where everything revolves around Dialogue, Debate and Diversity.
  • A Broader Mind – In the A Broader Mind Course you discover your role in society, now and in the future.
  • Aurora – Aurora is a European university network platform for learning from and with each other.
  • Diversity – We train our students to see things from a broader perspective.
  • Development Program Junior lecturers – The DPJ is an opportunity for creative and talented junior lecturers.
  • Mixed Classroom – This educational approach builds upon differences to enrich learning experiences.
  • Pre-University College – Secondary schools and VU work together to prepare students for their studies.
  • Virtual Reality – Research and education come together in immersive VR environments.
