USP's autumn semester begins with a series of "hot talks"

Our autumn semester is full of inspiring lectures and learning activities, including a series of “hot talks” on Mondays at the new USP premises in Porthania.
USP Hot Talks

 

The hot talks are part of a 10-credit course called "Introduction to Urban Studies & Planning," The talks will cover a variety of burning issues in the fields of urban studies and planning. They will take place at 10 am on Mondays in a brand new USP space in Porthania (P114) on the City Centre Campus. Each lecture will be followed by a workshop with discussions and exercises.
