Join our Summer School on Intercultural Competence for professionals

13 - 17 June

Summer School

Do you help others develop their intercultural competence? And do you want to further your ability to engage with cultural diversity in your classroom? Then the Summer School on Intercultural Competence is for you.

During one intensive training week, various questions will be addressed, such as: ‘How can I effectively structure my teaching to facilitate intercultural learning?’, ‘What kinds of participants can I encounter and how should I tailor my training to their needs?’ and ‘How do I deal with various kinds of resistance in a group?’

This Summer School is intended for professionals in the fields of intercultural competence development and internationalization. We will cover everything from communication and thinking styles to intercultural training methods and resources.

'This training course provided me with tools and concepts that I can use in my work to address intercultural competence among support staff and students, to become more culturally sensitive.'

The Summer School will take place from 13 to 17 June. Registration is possible until 1 May 2022. For more information and registration, visit our website.
