Many international students come to Ulm. Many German students do part of their studies abroad. We increasingly navigate in an international environment during our studies as well as in the working life. Which challenges accompany these intercultural experiences and what kind of strategies are there so they turn out to be a success? What exactly is culture? These questions are the focus of this one-day workshop during which we will analyse cultural differences and reflect on our own values in life.

As international and German students form different fields of study are welcome to attend the workshop, it is a great opportunity to benefit from the many different perspectives and to start building an international network.

Practical exercises and simulations will be part of this interactive workshop.  But first, we will start the day together with a nice breakfast.
