The Launch Process

Passion Projects and Our Partners

Passion Projects are a way for students to put what they learn in the classroom into practice in the real-world and to tackle real-world problems. Each student joins a Passion Project with 3-5 other students. They will then pursue the backing of one of our partners who help launch the project by the end of the 9 months at Global U!
