The program combines practical and theoretical information about the social and cultural environment. Cross-cultural exchange is a crucial part of the program as participants come from different countries, thus providing opportunities for professional development, sharing and learning as well as broadening professional and personal horizons.
The program is divided in a one week “general program” for all participants and a one week “individual program” depending on the special interest of the participants.
