The main focus of UBD’s GenNEXT programme is experiential learning. As such, students are moved out of their classroom environment to undergo a Discovery Year programme.

During this Discovery Year, students will be given the opportunity to gain community­ based or international experience outside of the UBD campus.

Students will be able to choose from any of the following options in combination:

  • Enroll in a study abroad programme in one of UBD’s partner universities. Take on an internship with appropriate companies or agencies.
  • Plan and implement community outreach programmes. Create start­up and innovation enterprises.

The Discovery Year will develop students personally, academically and professionally, by providing opportunities to engage with local and international communities, and prolonged exposure to the professional workplace and business world.
