Honours Programme, KU Leuven – Stellenbosch University, Think Tank 2019

Call for Master’s students:


Dear student,

The “KU Leuven – Stellenbosch University Think Tank” is a joint extra-curricular and multidisciplinary honours programme.

We are reaching out to motivated Master’s students to engage themselves in this international project running from February – November 2019. Together with South African Master’s students – and assisted by an interdisciplinary academic team – you will elaborate a project on the following topic:


“Health, well-being and the future of healthcare”

More than ever before health and healthcare are at the crossroads of scientific disciplines. Master’s students within ‘Science, Engineering & Technology’, ‘Humanities and Social Sciences’ and ‘Biomedical Sciences’ are joining forces to address present and future challenges. A unique interdisciplinary endeavour in which many opportunities arise!


More information on the theme, conditions for participation, application and selection can be found here:  Think Tank edition 2019

This call is explicitly open to Master’s students from all KU Leuven faculties and campuses.

Do you want to look beyond the borders of your own discipline and are you looking for opportunities for in-depth discussion with students and experts within an intercultural context? Are you motivated to think out of the box and ready to creatively shape your own project?
Are you looking for an extra challenge on top of your regular curriculum?

If this is the case, this Think Tank may be something for you!
