The world is increasingly changing. Facing the prospect of a second collapse of the global economy, humanity is searching for a substainable economic, social and cultural plan to take us into the future. Classical boundaries between disciplines are no longer of any significance. Innovation is taken place in between borders of science, economics and arts. Do you want to be part of this future and be a ‘critical engaged artist’ of innovative and artistic concepts which combine entrepreneurial and social issues? Does your imagination go beyond the limits of science and arts? Do you think in terms of projects rather than classes? If so, iArts is the answer. iArts stands for interdisciplinary Arts, an intensive international three-year Bachelor’s programme for the creative and intelligent multitalented. It builds bridges between the arts, sciences, society and entrepreneurship. This hybrid is a joint initiative of the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts, the Maastricht Academy of Music, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Maastricht University and Van Eyck. The programme is an exciting cross-over of artistic skills, academic reflection, research and entrepreneurship. They are connected in projects and seminars with a strong focus on today’s societal issues. This makes iArts the first bachelor’s programme in the Netherlands to link interdisciplinarity in the arts to academic scholarship and partners outside of the academy. Projects The iArts programme is a 4 year bachelor’s programme within 3 years. This means it is a very intense, high-density programme. In the course of the programme you’ll work on a series of projects. You’ll invent creative and original solutions for current social and cultural issues, in the form of artistic products or artful interventions. Think installations, films, performances, and games. Think meetings, publications, plans, and enterprises. Each and every intervention will be the result of interdisciplinary teamwork. Your teachers are experts in their fields and have experience with interdisciplinary encounters. The study programme is built up around four domains; Arts & Society, Arts & Science, Arts & Entrepreneurship and Arts & Culture. The blocks are projects connected to domains, which are organized together with different partners in the world from the Arts, Sciences and Society. Next to fulfill these projects there will be courses with theory and the methods and techniques to become a ‘critical engaged artist’. The theory will be based upon art history, contemporary art theory, philosophy, marketing, management, creative writing, art and communication. Baseline In addition to the projects, the curriculum consists of a baseline: an in-depth programme with attention for theory, skills training and reflection. In theory education, disciplines such as art history, art analysis, dramaturgy, philosophy, text analysis and sociology are drawn on in order to explore specific themes addressed in project education in more depth. Examples of skills training are singing, design skills and Multi Media training. Focus During the programme, you’ll further develop your own direction of artistic and intellectual growth. You’ll also learn how to manage your projects professionally and make them financially viable. In the second year, there is time to further train your capacities in projects with external partners. In the third year, you’ll develop and complete a graduation project of your own. You’ll write a graduation thesis in which you describe the research done in preparation of your graduation, the concept you developed based on this research, and your artistic working process, as well as the entrepreneurial aspects of your entire graduation project.

The LEP draws on resources and experience made available to us by our world class partners in language teaching, assessment and quality assurance – Cambridge University Press, Cambridge English Language Assessment and Bell Educational Services. By presenting our students with a clear pathway consisting of carefully structured levels of language development, we help students develop not only English skills, but the confidence to use them in their academic and professional lives. Program Highlights Qualified and experienced international teachers, dedicated to students’ success World-class teaching / learning materials Interactive classrooms Intensive, English-only environment State-of-the-art on-line study materials to support out-of-class study Continual assessment and feedback on student performance A curriculum that promotes 21st century skills Program Outcomes Upon completion of the program, students will be able to: Communicate effectively in spoken and written English in order to succeed in English-medium instruction at Stamford International University and in other higher educational contexts Achieve an overall English proficiency level of B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) Apply study and critical thinking skills in their university studies Collaborate with students from all around the world Develop general language awareness and an inclination for lifelong learning Structure and Requirements Our curriculum and its levels have been professionally benchmarked against the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages – a widely used standard put together by the Council of Europe as a way of measuring language ability for different languages of the world. Our Foundation (and Pre-Foundation) levels provide the basis for continuation into both International and Bilingual Programs and aim to bring students to a basic operational level of language proficiency (A2). After having passed the Foundation level, students have 2 options: Continue studying English full-time and aim for entry into their chosen International Program delivered 100% in English from their 1st year. Enter the Bilingual Program and study English part-time while beginning their undergraduate studies in Thai-medium instruction and transitioning to English-medium instruction in their 2nd and 3rd years. The minimum level required in order to take a full-time load in EMI (i.e. to take all credit-bearing courses in English-medium instruction) is B2. This can be done after passing Academic Preparation 2 (ACP2) en route for the International Program or ACP 022 in the Bilingual Program. The minimum level required in order to take one approved course in EMI (i.e. to take one credit-bearing course carefully chosen with the help of the student’s advisor) is B1. This can be done after passing ACP 012 in the Bilingual Program. After students have completed the preparatory pathway and are ready for EMI, they extend the development of their academic writing, research and presentation skills through three college-level English classes: College English I (ENG 101), College English II (ENG 102) and College English III (ENG 103). Placement and Exemption Students wishing to enter International or Bilingual undergraduate programs who do not have proof of their English proficiency and those whose proficiency does not meet the requirements for entry into the respective programs are required to take the LEP Placement Test. The placement test consists of 3 components: An Online Objective Placement Assessment (Listening, Reading and Language Use) A Paper-based Placement Essay (Writing) An Interview (Speaking) According to results on the placement test, students are placed on the LEP pathway or are deemed ready for their academic studies in English (starting in ENG 101 or ENG 102). Once a student has been placed in a level, s/he must pass that and each subsequent level until s/he reaches the English proficiency needed for admission to her chosen undergraduate program. The only exception is with the Pre-Foundation level – this course is provided to support students who are not deemed ready to begin with the full Foundation level, but no pass/fail grade is awarded. Curriculum Features All LEP course are delivered by qualified and experienced EAP (English for Academic Purposes) teachers. We follow an active, communicative approach, believing that languages are best learnt in the contexts in which they are applied. Materials used in class have been carefully chosen to motivate learners all the while providing them with examples of the language and skills they will need to succeed in their academic and professional lives. All LEP courses also provide students with a state of the art online learning platform which give students a safe environment to support and consolidate their classroom learning. Video role plays and record-and-compare voice tools allow students to practice all language skills and receive feedback privately, which in turn builds confidence to try out these skills in the classroom and in real-life. Web 2.0 communication tools (forums, blogs, wikis) also provide students with opportunities to practice English beyond the classroom and develop core 21st Century learning skills. As part of their studies on the LEP, students also take part in activities such as extensive reading, collaborative projects, impromptu talks, writing portfolios, and work with authentic language. These additional curriculum features help our students develop through a variety of learning styles and promote independent, self-directed language learning. Assessment Assessment is carried out by all the LEP teachers who teach a student. Teachers draw on their extensive acquaintance with the student’s English abilities, the student’s attendance record and the student’s performance on in-class and out-of-class assignments, quizzes and tests to make their course assessments. Passing: In order to pass each level, students must: Achieve overall score of 60% on each course within the level. Have attended 80% of all classroom hours. [-]
