This course is aimed at highly motivated students who wish to learn one or more languages (Chinese [Mandarin], French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Spanish) and become well acquainted and familiar with their culture(s). Their skills and knowledge will be further developed and enriched by spending two trimesters studying university courses in the country of their chosen language(s). This broadens graduates' career options and gives them a competitive advantage in today's increasingly multicultural and international workplace environments.
Currently, agreements or bilateral exchange agreements exist with specific universities in China (Xi'an), France (Angers, Saint-Etienne) and French-speaking Canada (Quebec City), Germany (Oldenburg, Trier) and Austria (Graz, Klagenfurt), Indonesia (Mataram, Gajah Mada, Malang), Italy (Macerata), Spain (Universitdad de Jaén) and Japan (Hiroshima, Kagoshima, Nagoya, Tokyo).
