In the following link you will find previous graduates from the Creative Genius semester describing what the Creative Genius semester is like.

Students from previous class say:

"It is not just an opportunity for differentiating yourself from you fellow students. It is an exceptional opportunity for personal development. You get the opportunity to practise and reflect about the way your approach a variety of situations in your professional life as well as your private. It has been an eye opening experience for me, and I would recommend it to anybody who feels that their 9th semester should not just be business as usual."

"Even though I decided to join the CG semester in search of something new, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It ended up by being the best experience in my master's. I've acquired skills that will accompany me throughout my life in all aspects, professional and personal. It definitely broadens your perspective. Teaches you how to put into use all your knowledge and mostly how to awake the numb creativity within you. By the end of CG you'll have a better understanding of what creativity really is and fade out its misrepresentation."

"I had always wanted to study out of my field for the purpose of acquiring new knowledge and versatile skills. My experience at CG was very unique and exceeded my expectations. Not only did I achieve my objective but CG has contributed so much in enabling me understand myself better both on an academic and professional level, through tools and techniques on how to focus, think and examine problems creatively which I have incorporated in my studies and will do so in my future career. I would recommend this program to everyone."
