EM intercultural life

Nearly all respondents (93,37%) indicated that there were situations where they had experienced intercultural issues during their EM courses. Various intercultural issues in different situations and contexts during the EM period were noted.

The overwhelming majority (97%) of these students indicated that, in their opinion, the provision of an intercultural competence training programme would be beneficial: only 3% thought the existence of such a programme would not really make a difference.

The background study showed that there is a high need for increasing the understanding of and developing training support for intercultural competence within the EM programmes. The EMIC project and the network composition were developed on the basis of the results of the EMIC background study.
