Intercultural communication

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.

Learn about intercultural matters

  • Intercultural training: What is it about other cultures that is so foreign? How do we as Germans come across to others? How do misunderstandings arise, and how should I deal with them? How can I better understand foreign behaviour patterns?
  • Workshops on specific countries: Do you feel the need for some cultural preparation ahead of a period abroad, or would you like some up to date information about a particular country?
  • Workshops on different aspects of the English language and on academic writing in English: Workshops on different aspects of the English language and on academic writing in English: How should I plan and write a piece of academic work? Do you have any questions or any problems regarding writing an application, a seminar paper or your thesis?
  • Tandem programme: Learn a language with a tandem partner.
