An engaging academic experience

An interdisciplinary approach to understand complex societal problems

We need interdisciplinary connections to enhance our understanding of the modern world, to create and assess possible innovative solutions. Students will acquire the skills for their future career and life. We enable them to approach societal challenges from different angles and find interdisciplinary solutions.
Personal guidance

A small-scale educational approach with a personal touch

Our students benefit from personal guidance and PPLE’s small-scale educational approach. This means that tutorial groups are small and a personal approach in teaching is encouraged. You will find that PPLE College fosters a true community-like atmosphere.
The PPLE Community

An engaging learning community that fosters personal growth

PPLE is a tight-knit learning community of students and teachers who share a critical mind and a curiosity towards the wicked problems of today's and tomorrow's society. Students develop not only academically but also on a personal level outside the classroom.

The admissions process intimidated me a bit at first. However, I quickly learned what was expected of me and I believe the process prepared me for this course. Robert Birkmayer - Germany Read more about Robert's experience at PPLE College
