UTIntercultural Competences

Programme overview

The sign-up for the mobility week is now open for current ICCS students!

are you ready to take your intercultural Competences to the next level?

Whether in your studies, a real-life (ECIU) challenge or in your future career, the need to develop your intercultural competences and become able to work with anyone and anywhere in the world is becoming more and more important. Being connected with other countries and other cultures can provide you with wonderful opportunities for collaboration and new and refreshing insights. To accommodate such creative collaboration, it is important to make sure you have the right tools for effective teamwork in multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary groups. With this course, you will gain practical insights into intercultural competences by creating your own Citizen Science project!

In the ECIU Micro-module "Intercultural Competences: Guiding Practical Insights through Citizen Science", hosted by the University of Twente, you will learn how you can become a (future) professional within an interconnected world. Alongside the University of Twente, this module is organised and facilitated together with our partners:

During this micro-module, you will learn to better understand and work within diverse groups, how to improve on your communicative skills and create an effective team, and how you can apply and present your solutions in a broad variety of contexts. The micro-module has a study load of 2 or 3 ECTS (see course components) and takes place over the course of 13 weeks within a flexible learning structure. The course will kick off on the 20th of November 2023 and will conclude on the 23th of February 2024. Together with experts from our seven universities, we aim to provide you with the tools you need to make the most out of your international teamwork.
