Perspectives on Education

Karel de Grote university college aims to give its students and staff members the opportunity to discover what their talents are and to further develop these talents. We strongly believe that teamwork allows both students and staff members to acquire competencies – such as knowledge, skills, insight, and attitudes – that are essential in a working context as well as in the broader context of our society. One of the most vital competences is, without a doubt, the ability to make an effort for those who, due to certain circumstances, are not able to fully develop their talents.
