Content of Workshops

  • Culture - What is that?
  • Intercultural Communication - is that possible?
  • Perception and Values - does it belong together?
  • Intercultural Conflict Management - sounds difficult...
  • Stereotype and prejudice - are they really useful?

Intercultural competence - What does that really mean? Are there misunderstandings based on interculturality and how can I avoid them? How can I interact with people from very different cultures without upsetting them and without acting in an artificial way at the same time?

During the intercultural workshops we will find answers for all those questions. By teamwork, discussions, examples and simulations, we will have a constant change of perspective and get unexpected solutions. A great possibility not only to get Softskills at University, but also to get a great base for your personal life.
