  • Course Description:

Leaving home and your familiar comfort zone to travel to a new country can be a stressful experience especially when you are confronted with different manifestations of culture, e.g. national everyday culture, academic culture and conventions, as well as a different language and communication culture.

Because you and the other participants decide on what issues we discuss and work on, each of these tutorials is unique. Besides discussing issues that are important to you personally, we will also cover topics such as homesickness, culture shock, procrastination, German values and social interaction. Moreover, you can learn from the experience of others in the group who are also going through similar experiences.

Aims:

  • to develop your intercultural cultural understanding and self-awareness
  • to expand your behavioural strategies so that you can successfully handle challenging situations both in everyday and academic life
  • to provide you, as a doctoral candidate, with a clear understanding of how German universities function
