Are you enthusiastic, open-minded and ready to be challenged and inspired for a future in the global world? Would you like to develop strong communication skills, be heard, contribute, expand your horizons, and make a difference?
“World Citizen” is for you if you are curious to explore and broaden your cultural perspective around the world. We will help you develop your intercultural competence and mind-set in preparation for your future international dreams. We will broaden your respect for other people, their diverse backgrounds and cultures.
You will be inspired by guests from around the world. You will visit international businesses and educational institutions which operate globally. You will have the opportunity to travel with your peers to other countries, both inside and outside Europe.
You will participate in our project called ‘Erasmus’ where you will work as part of an international team, with students from Sweden, Poland, Germany and Estonia. Together you will form a student company where you will develop ideas for products, with the market potential for the Baltic region.
Tolerance, respect and understanding are the keywords.
Our springboard to developing intercultural competences that are appreciated internationally, include:
- Respect (‘valuing others’)
- Self-awareness/identity (understanding the lens through which we view the world)
- Seeing the world from other perspectives (both differences and similarities)
- Intercultural communication (developing spoken and written language skills)
- Adaptability (being able to shift temporarily into another perspective)
- Cultural humility (combines respect with self-awareness)
- Global knowledge and mind-set (combines educational learning with mental sentiment)
World Citizen will be taught in English by Alison Mary (native British) and Anne-Sophie (native German).
