Good Life

(autumn and spring)

Do you like people? Do you like to delve into real life issues that are crucial for the experience of a healthy and happy life? Would you like to work in a professional and international team and strengthen your intercultural and international skills? If yes, the Good Life is for you!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we cancelled this programme for both semesters of 2020-2021. We hope to see you in autumn 2021!

Team and projects

In this programme you work together with students from Windesheim and students from abroad on the analysis of complex issues related to Good Life. You will learn to work with the Good Life Model: an analysis and design tool for developing interventions that contribute to Good Life. You will be trained to develop your own international and intercultural competences. You learn about design thinking and co-creation and how to use this to design an innovative product or service for a client or  group. The result of the project is a prototype of an innovation that contributes to the strengthening of the Good Life of a specific group.

Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you will get study credits that may count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So studying at Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your overall study time. At the end of your course you will receive a Transcript of Records stating the number of ECTS credits you have obtained.

Important isues

Many people have questions about themselves: who am I, what makes my life meaningful? How can I live well with others and how healthy am I? Governments, companies and institutions feel the need to develop new services and products that contribute to improve on individual and collective levels towards a Good Life. On a large scale the question is being raised as to how we can anticipate towards a good life together in a rapidly developing diverse and technological society. A society in which people grow older and public and individual life changes drastically.
