Important information!

Because of the current health situation, our courses will be distance-taught. The concept will remain interactive: an alternation of direct online contact, work in sub-groups (video conferences) and private (individual) study. We use a stimulating and motivating didactic approach, and encourage the active participation of everyone involved.

You will receive more precise information when the groups have been formed.
