HSRW students receive the VE certificates

The first participants from HSRW received their certificates for the THN-VE. A total of 15 students from all four faculties successfully completed their virtual exchange. Feedback from students on the courses has been overwhelmingly positive. Just the registration process for the courses was a bit challenging depending on how many courses were chosen. Students would like to have one central registration for this: “Despite early problems registering with the partner universities and accessing courses, the experience was definitely worth it in the end,” said Celine Balle, student at HSRW. “My degree programme in International Relations also offers a module on Intercultural Management, but the module offered by our partner university in Spain was structured very differently and offered other perspectives and approaches to the topic. We all found it very interesting.”
