Apply for our 2017 course start

The course begins with a learning laboratory in Lund, Sweden, on January 16-20 2017. The learning laboratory is mandatory for first-year master students. 

Even though we are passed the first application deadline the application is still open and we are able to accept late applications as long as we do not make other announcements here.

Our aim

Our aim is to get people from across safety-critical industries like healthcare, aviation, shipping, process control, military, railways and nuclear power together to critically reflect on and learn about human factors and system safety. Through a series of new Learning Laboratories and a full MSc programme, you too can participate in the exciting scientific renaissance and rapid development of complexity and systems thinking that will help you and your organization learn and grow.

If you would like to get in touch with any of our former or current master students, prior to deciding whether or not to submit an application, some of them are listed with their contact details following this link.
