Global Systems and intercultural Competence

The GSiK project

Since 2008 the project “Global Systems and intercultural Competence” offers all students at the University of Würzburg – regardless of their degree subject – access to an extensive interdisciplinary teaching programme. The project deals with intercultural competencies and the global systems that underlie interculturality. We offer you the opportunity to gain a core competence for work and daily life that will be certified by the University of Würzburg.

In short:

  • Intercultural competence:

    Dealing competently with strangeness and complexity are a necessity in today’s work and daily life. Intercultural competence is therefore considered a core competence in the 21st century!

  • Interdisciplinarity:

    GSiK collaborates with various partner institutions, inside and outside the University of Würzburg, making us a unique project throughout Germany. This comprehensive interdisciplinary approach to the GSiK topics enables you to get an insight into other fields of knowledge beyond your degree subject. 

  • GSiK teaching programme:

    Every semester, GSiK offers a wide range of events (seminars, workshops and lectures), because intercultural competence cannot be learned in a weekend training! All events are accessible by all students of all faculties and degrees.

  • GSiK certificate:

    GSiK acknowledges your efforts by issuing you a certificate! Some of the GSiK seminars can also be credited for your degree subject.
