Any student who studies in the Business School is invited to take part in an International study week in Heidelberg, Germany 10th -14th October 2016

The week long event includes a range of taught sessions, visits, cultural events and socialising https://www.hochschule-heidelberg.de/de/hochschule/international/international-week/ I would particularly recommend going to the Stock Exchange in Frankfurt (about 45 mins from Heidelberg) and the Brewery. You will meet students from all around the world, building some great networks and making some friends as well as adding to your CV showing you are internationally minded and enhancing your employability.

You will participate in a series of taught sessions, delivered by academics from all over the world and both lectures and visits are in English. The town of Heidelberg is very international and virtually all English speaking so you don’t have to be able to speak German.  If you are successful in your application, you can chose any one of the courses on offer to study for the week, with all courses culminating in short tests/exams on the Friday, and if you pass, you will be awarded 3 ECTS points, which you can add to your academic profile.

The cost of this week will be heavily subsidised by the Business School, but if you are successful in your application you will then need to reserve your place with a £50 non-refundable contribution to the cost of the programme by 1st September 2016, when the booking for places at this very popular international week is open. I taught on this last year and had a group of 30 students from the US, South Korea, Australia, Mexico, India, China, Spain, UK and Russia and am aware it was heavily oversubscribed as they have been running two of these a year for about 10 years.

As a tutor in this internatioanal week, Heidelberg Hochshule have invited up to 5 CCCU Business School students to attend. If you are interested, you need to apply directly to me at kristine.pole@canterbury.ac.uk, with a completed application form, by 31st August 2016. I will then review all the applications and let you know if you have been successful, so you can pay your £50 booking fee on 1st September and register for your chosen course online. The only other costs will be your own spending money, meals when travelling and some evening meals, although breakfast and lunch is included.

I am sure you will agree this is a great programme so do follow the application criteria but if you would like to email me with any questions to just to express your interest please do so.

Best wishes,

Kris Pole
