Принимая участие в межкультурных мастерских, иностранные студенты не только получают знания, но и обмениваются опытом, вырабатывают разные навыки.
Intercultural workshops are interactive. They provide opportunities for participants to acquire cultural knowledge and to practice the newly acquired cultural knowledge while developing skills.
Workshops are customized. Any group of international students may contact us with suggestions and may request an intercultural workshop.
|New Cultural Environment:
Adaptation or Culture Shock?

what is happening when living and studying in a new
cultural environment. Socio-cultural differences may cause
confusion, frustration, uncertainty, anxiety.
How to reduce these negative feelings?
How to adapt to a new setting faster and more effectively?
The workshop is supposed to answer these questions.
