Project Week

 Every year, one of the participating partners organizes a project week in which students conduct an indepth research on a tourism related theme. The students work in mixed groups from different nationalities under the guidance of lecturers and professionals. Students may also get an assignment prior to and after the project week. Excursions and other international events can be arranged as well. Each University College selects maximum 12 students who will take part in the ACEEPT project week. As a result, about 90 to 100 students from 9 to 10 different European countries have the chance to experience an exciting and challenging international and educational week in a multi-lingual context.
