How much time am I expected to spend on Circle U. Challenge?

It is strongly recommended that you attend as many workshops as possible offered across the Circle U Challenge Partner Universities. You don’t have to do any preparation on your own. 

Do I need to participate in all workshops?

Not participating in the workshops will not disqualify you from remaining in the challenge. It is important, however, that you communicate that with your team and make sure they pass on what they have learnt to you. Some of the workshops will be recorded, so you can watch them afterwards.

Can I sign up as a team?

You can sign up in three ways. You can sign up as a team, as long as there are at different study lines represented in your team. You can also sign up two people together. And finally, you can also sign up individually, and then we gather you in a teams consisting of 3-5 people. When gathering the teams, we aim for maximum diversity with regards to education, gender and nationality. This gives you access to the innovation potential of interdisciplinarity, as well as a great experience with using your skills and knowledge in a new context. You will have a team building workshop and will have ample time to get to know your team well during the span of the challenge. 

How many people are there in each team?

Each team consists of 3-5 people.
