Talent Programmes

Talent programmes are always extra-curricular and must correspond to a minimum of 10 ECTS points. They are offered to a limited number of students, who are selected either objectively or based on academic acceptance criteria.

Cross-faculty talent programmes

Cross-faculty talent programmes are offered to students from all faculties at SDU, resulting in teams consisting of students from a diversity of disciplines.

The SDU Citizen Science talent programme 2020 invites gifted students from all faculties to explore the value of Citizen Science. Lead scientific change through co-creation.

The talent programme is attractive to students across all SDU faculties as it builds your competence in engaging citizens in many different ways. It addresses also the SDG #17 on ‘Partnerships’. The individual Citizen Science projects will even respond to other goals too.

As part of the programme students are invited to participate at ECSA Conference (Spring 2020) and attending a study trip to London (Fall 2020) free of charge.
