Multinational, multidisciplinary, co-curricular project integration 


At the University of Pretoria, integrating the VIP programme and similar initiatives, like the AREND* project, into the formal curriculum is impossible. Yet, without strong curricular alignment, the longevity and productivity of the student teams falter. We present and discuss the phases of co-curricular alignment that we experimented with at the University of Pretoria. We also discuss the challenges and benefits of the experience.
