Fit 4 Abroad?!

Dealing with the culture shock, mastering difficulties in communication, overcoming homesickness… While studying abroad, you will not only have to face academic challenges. In order to provide advice and support and ensure a comprehensive preparation of your stay abroad, we offer intercultural awareness trainings at regular intervals. These provide you with the opportunity to discuss topics such as cultural imprinting and bias and to expand your intercultural competence. In hands-on exercises, you will learn how to deal with challenging situations that you may encounter during your stay abroad and exchange your expectations and worries with other students. Be well-prepared for your stay abroad!


Please note: Our trainers have traveled the world themselves and are happy to give you a few practical tips. The training does not focus on your questions about finding accommodation, visa etc. but rather on your personal preparation. Participation in the Fit 4 Abroad training is free of charge and both possible and useful for students of all disciplines. After successful completion of the two-day training event, you will receive a certificate.
