Going Abroad: Students taking part in the Liberal Arts Programme (B.A)
"During my year in Germany I improved my German a lot. I made nice German friends who were patient about my German, and at times when I couldn't understand them, they didn't choose the easier way by switching to English but instead they repeated what they had said in German. That really encouraged me to learn more!"
Aylin, B.A. student at MIC, Erasmus year in Bamberg
The Off-Campus Programme for third-year B.A. students allows students to broaden their knowledge and skills by either conducting a work placement outside MIC or by studying or working abroad. Especially when studying a foreign language, students can profit from a stay abroad with regard to both their professional and their personal development. Students doing German as one of their degree subjects are therefore required to spend at least one semester in a German speaking country during their third year. However, the German Department advises students to spend the full academic year abroad. As experience has shown, this will allow them to settle in properly and enable them to gain profound understanding of the foreign culture and language.
If you are a B.A. student with German as one of your degree subjects you have several possibilities to spend a period of time abroad. For further information, click below:
