International MSc in Foresight

& Innovation (IMFI) Study Programme & Units of Learning (UL) This ISTIA's interdisciplinary curriculum emphasizes international cooperation and provides students with varied perspectives on the world’s activities—perspectives activities normally reserved for those with years of diverse professional experience. The programme includes a wide variety of activities, including lectures by renowned experts, hands-on activities and projects, team work exercises and professional visits. Each year it will be evaluated and will thus evolve to better meet the needs of the students and their prospective employers. Throughout the curriculum, students are encouraged to contribute contribute their own ideas, knowledge and interest, while—in while accordance with ISTIA's philosophy— —being open to and learning from others' unique perspectives. This curriculum is conducted in English (UK English). Teaching includes core lecture series, workshops, workshops, assignments, field trips, project team, and internship. All students attend the core lecture series, series, which ensures that they have an understanding of the fundamentals of all disciplines relevant to Foresight and Innovation—and and that they understand the relationships between these disciplines in any activity.
