While learning and studying for exams undoubtedly expands a student’s knowledge, it involves learning only few skills. Project work and workshops redresses this balance, by fostering a wide range of skills and enhancing capabilities to synthesize, articulate, define problems, formulate hypotheses, experiment, analyze, interpret, plan and execute the results of an experiment or investigation and draw conclusions from data. Project work and workshops allow students to learn ‘actively’ and take responsibility for and ownership of their ideas.
RGU also arranges a wide range of guest lectures and seminars by experienced professionals from the government, business/management, and academic field. It allows students to view their studies from a different point of view while also gaining practical knowledge.
The best curriculum strikes a perfect balance between knowledge and skills and helps students develop their understanding of both themselves and the world around them.
