You will be introduced to the courses that are at the heart of the AUC programme: the Academic Core. Dr. Marianne Riphagen (Head of Studies, Academic Core) will explain what the core consists of, which courses are required and describe the skills you will learn by taking these courses.
In these sessions, the Heads of Studies for the Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities will highlight the most important things for you to know about your major, the subjects you'll study and the course options within them. You should attend the major session for which you applied to AUC via the Social Sciences, Sciences or Humanities links via the link list.
