Our values

Experience-based learning

 

The old and outdated idea that the teacher is the main figure in the classroom does not suit the society of tomorrow. At DNS, the students are together with the teacher in the centre of their education. Learning is happening constantly, through a hands-on, activity-based programme. We learn by doing, working together and by exploring the different realities of people.

Global Perspective

Acquiring the knowledge, being aware of what is going on in the world, does not only mean to read books, articles or watch documentaries. It also means to travel, to talk with people from different countries and to face at close range the different realities that people live in. We explore the Global reality already in the first year by a 4 month bus travel to Western Africa as a study project.

Hear from our Graduates

“After graduating a traditional university, which was rather more theoretical than practical, I felt that something was missing. This is where DNS came into my life. DNS was the missing piece that completed my theoretical studies with practical experiences.”

Marta from Romania

Graduate of team DNS 2013

“DNS taught me to be able to live in a community and to value it, looking at the challenges of our society the ability to work together is a skill needed in facing all the issues today.”

Theresa from Germany

Graduate of team DNS 2008

“When I was about to graduate I was confused, some wondered if I did not know what to do because there were no options, I had to explain that I did not know because I could think at least of 1000 options I could go for and I knew all of them were real options.”

Marina from Spain

Graduate of team DNS 2015
