New students in the Business German and Tourism Management (WDT) program take part in a preparatory course prior to the start of the semester (in September). The course is intended to prepare you for studying in Konstanz and to help you get off to a good start.
Our preparatory course consists of the following classes and workshops:
- Intensive German Course
This course focuses on speaking and pronunciation and preparing students for intercultural situations.
- Introduction to Business Administration
The goal of this course is to provide students with basic business and economic background knowledge that they will need in courses such as Business Administration.
- Workshop: Teambuilding
In this workshop, students work in multicultural teams and learn to develop and express their creativity. The workshop promotes intercultural collaboration and academic success.
- Outdoor Activity (Mainau Climbing Park)
The excursion to the climbing park on the nearby Mainau Island helps first semester students develop group cohesion. They learn to trust in their own strengths, develop a positive group feeling and, last but not least, have a lot of fun.
- Dealing with Formalities
Our staff help with the bureaucratic formalities required for enrolling at the HTWG Konstanz.
- Grand Finale: A Delicious Feast
The final highlight of the course is a grand feast, a so-called “pot luck”, where students prepare culinary specialties from their home countries to share with the group. Students from upper semesters are invited to join the festivities and share their experiences in the program. A great time is had by all.
