Q & A

Besides completing the individual online self-assessment in calm hours for yourself, we recommend to work with a peer group to share your thoughts and experiences with other like-minded students. A participation in an intercultural competence training or an intercultural engagement can help you to get more sensitized for international working contacts.


You can build a peer-group with friends or other students from your discipline. If you are looking for other students to work with, the community #workinginternationally on Rocket.Chat offers the possibility to get in touch with international and German students of all disciplines.


The Career Service offers an advisory service for your individual questions as well as events in German and English language. If you are interested in an internship abroad or if you would like to work in Germany, check out the eLearning materials on Ilias (Link folgt)


It takes about 3-4 hours to complete an online module. If you would like to combine the individual tasks with peer group tasks, you should calculate 2 hours extra.
