Studying abroad is about YOU and not about us. We want you to succeed!
The integrated International Culture and Career Seminar is designed for students to hone in on developing their professional, academic, and personal skills during their study abroad program. It guides them into a deeper reflection and will help them to put their understanding into context.
Through this seminar, you will receive a deeper knowledge about the cultural context and your own cultural identity. You will also learn to identify the skills you develop when studying abroad and how to vocalize and market them. A goal setting exercise, a resume/cover letter evaluation and one-on-one support at key stages during your study abroad program from the on-site team are part of the process.
You will also participate in a number of cultural excursions, business visits, an international symposium, a number of reflective discussions, and engage in career development activities.
Most importantly, after you return home, you will be better able to articulate the skills, knowledge, and experience you gained in Heidelberg and distinguish yourself in the job market and in graduate school applications.
