Do you want to help others develop their intercultural competence? During this structured training participants will gain a deeper insight into their own culture and get the knowledge and skills needed to communicate effectively across cultures in your classroom.


If you have the responsibility to develop this intercultural competence in others, the Summer School on Intercultural Competence is for you. The programme is intended for professionals in the fields of intercultural competence development and internationalisation. It offers a comprehensive overview of intercultural training design with an emphasis on using developmental approaches to enhance cultural learning. It addresses questions such as: “How do I structure effective training?” “What kinds of participants can I encounter and how do I tailor my training to their needs?” “How do I deal with various kinds of resistance in a group?”
