Language/Format:
This seminar takes place in English and online via BigBlueButton in Stud.IP.

Course Content:
The need for intercultural competence is greater than ever before. People from different countries study and work together and sometimes due to cultural differences we encounter misunderstandings and conflicts. The goal of the seminar is to identify cultural barriers, understand them and use them as a chance for successful cooperation.

The format of the seminar is interactive with a combination of theory and hands-on exercises to optimize learning.

This seminar is for both German (local) and international students. This diversity offers a great opportunity for a healthy exchange and reflection. International students benefit from receiving tips for a successful stay in Germany and German students can better prepare for a stay abroad.

Please note: You don’t have to be perfect in English for this seminar, but you should have an interest in other countries and cultures and an open mind.
