Intercultural communication

Information for the winter semester:

Due to the Corona crisis, our courses and workshops will be offered in various formats - classroom, online or hybrid courses - in the winter semester.
All classroom sessions will be conducted in compliance with Reutlingen University’s hygiene concept.
Please note that we will react to current developments throughout the Corona crisis and, if necessary, continue all courses online. Current information from the University Management Team can be found here.

At an international university such as Reutlingen, meetings with international students and teachers are an everyday occurrence. Intercultural competence, the ability to deal with foreignness and differentness, is an important key skill - both here at the university and later in professional life.

The IfF offers students a number of opportunities to develop their intercultural competence and to become active in international matters - please read on for more information.
Registration for the workshops is possible from the start of the semester via RELAX.
