The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL)
Studying at Aalborg University is not about rote learning. Each semester, you will work closely together with a group of fellow students on a large written assignment. The study method is called problem based project work, or “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL)”, and is highly recognised both nationally and internationally.
The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner. You will also follow more traditional instruction, but the group work at AAU ensures that you build a network from the very start of your studies, and that you will not constantly be sitting on your own buried in your books.
The group work adds an academic and social dimension to your study programme and, at the same time, it equips you for the labour market where skills in cooperation are very sought after.
