Welcome to our Intercultural Summer Academies!

In our living and working environment more and more intercultural encounters are taking place. Hence, the ability to effectively communicate and deal with others in intercultural settings becomes a necessity. The Intercultural Summer Academies are a unique intercultural learning opportunity for students and young professionals to develop an intercultural perspective and raise awareness for otherness.
The curriculum is created in cooperation with academic experts and experienced intercultural trainers. It includes workshops and seminars on selected intercultural learning compounds.
In our Intercultural Summer Academies, participants can deepen their knowledge and enhance their intercultural competence in various fields.
Target Group
Our Intercultural Summer Academies are held in English and are open to anyone aged 18–35 with a demonstrable interest in intercultural encounters. Students can earn academic credit (ECTS).
About us
The Intercultural Summer Academies are jointly organized by InterCultur and Karlshochschule International University in cooperation with other formal and non-formal education partners since 2010.
