Come to Munich - be at home
Students of all universities in the area of the Studentenwerk Munich can participate.
The project is aimed at students who have at least basic knowledge of the German language. The programme wants to help students improve their German skills by interacting with natives and other international students that speak at least a basic German. If necessary, you can of course also communicate in English but the main spoken language should be German. The Studentenwerk Munich also provides financial support for Deutschkursen bei der Universität München when you are attending the project seminar.
You have the option of having an authorized person come by on your behalf, who will pay the deposit for you, fill out and sign the registration form. In this case, please contact us in advance so we can send you the form you need for authorizing your person of choice.
Yes, those who sign up for a binding application should also participate in the program. In order to ensure this, we reserve the right to withhold the deposit for non-show events.
You must participate two workshops (there is Groupe A or B - you have to select one groupe a combination of both groups is not possible) as well as three self-selected additional events. So altogether there are five events.
You will also need to hold a presentation and talk about your learning diary at the closing workshop. Details under ECTS/Zertifikat.
The management of the project seminar usually informs the respective participants 1-2 days in advance about the exact time, the meeting point and the expected duration of the event. There are also helpful tips on clothing, utensils to bring, etc. If you have registered for an event and have not received an infomail until the day, please contact the event management at Interkulturelles@stwm.de.
In principle, the event programme is designed to allow everyone to attend three events. However, if there are seats available at individual events, they may be filled by other participants, even if they are already participating in three other events. In any case, contact the event management and visit only events for which you have been confirmed.
In this case, please inform the event manager immediately of the contact details that you received in the associated infomail (usually email address or mobile phone number).
If you can present a doctor's certificate in case of illness, this is not a problem. However, you will need to attend a replacement event. There may still be free seats in another event in the current semester. Otherwise you will have to make up for the default in the following semester. In urgent cases (e.g. as an international homecoming at the end of the semester, graduation) You can also get an alternative task from us. If only parts of an event are missed, a solution will be agreed individually.
Attention: Participation in the two workshops is obligatory and cannot be replaced by other events. If you are missing, you cannot get a certificate/ECTS-points and you have to cancel the program. The workshops are a prerequisite for intercultural awareness and reflection in cultural events.
After evaluation of all services by the workshop leader, we will issue the certificates. As a rule these are completed at the end of the current semester or the beginning of the following semester and can then be collected at the cultural office. At the same time, you can receive your deposit back, if you have participated in all events, or if you are unable to attend an event, you can submit a certificate. You will receive an infomail.
The evaluations of the accomplishment are carried out first by the workshop leader of the accompanying workshops. As soon as they have created the marks and sent them to us, we, as project organisers, contact the Carl von Linde Academy and the Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS). These will then carry the marks for you. You do not have to register for the exam at the Carl von Linde Academy.
A registration form and detailed information can be found at registration.
