Connect to Campus Herning Prize


Sponsored by the AUHE Midwest Support Fund.

Submit your answer before 31 January 2020.

About the prize

We are launching the Connect to Campus Herning Prize – an opportunity for all of you to influence how Campus Herning can better connect to the outside world. We are looking for any idea that can improve our connection to potential students, students in companies and industry collaborators.

That is why we are inviting you to think outside the box, using your imagination, technical ability and business sense, and come up with new, inspirational and unexpected solutions that will make us better connected or inform us about whom we should connect to and how. 

The prize ceremony is on Thursday, 6 February 2020, at 15.00. You are expected to be present on campus between 12.00 and 14.00 that day to present a poster and defend your proposal. The student bar is open after the event.

Good luck!

Mind the Gap day

 

Did you know that at Campus Herning we have more than 10 study programmes and full-time students from Denmark and multiple other countries?

How often do you get an opportunity to get to know and work with students from other study programmes than yours? 

During the Mind the Gap Day on Friday 27th of September you will acquire knowledge and skills, as well as practical experience, that will allow you to work across professional and personal boundaries. Mind the Gap Day also offers you with the occasion to meet your fellow students and work with people with different academic and professional interests than yours.

Built around the Connect to Campus Herning Prize, multidisciplinary teams will cooperate on generating ideas to address the challenges presented by students not being physically present at Campus Herning every day, or by potential future students not knowing that Campus Herning exists and offers a wide range of study programmes. The choice of the focus is yours. 

Mind the Gap day is a free of charge event, but registration is compulsory and binding.

Coffee/tea, sandwiches and water will be provided.
