Blended Intensive Programme

2nd Pan-European FWPM as Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) in December 2022 on the Campus of Mid Sweden University in Östersund: Motto "Sustainable Business Development"

From December 12-16, 2022 (plus short online preparational and follow-up activities in the days before and after this period), the English-language FWPM "Total Immersion Week - Advanced Regional and Transversal Skills" will take place for the second time as part of the new Erasmus+ programme track "Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)" on the campus of the TH AB partner institution Mid Sweden University in Östersund, Sweden’s fifth largest city also known as a venue for the Biathlon World Cup. Östersund sits on the shore of idyllic Lake Storsjoen, said to be the home of a legendary serpent-like monster.

 

The FWPM is creditable with 5 ECTS towards the profile "BW/BWR International". A total of five places are available for students from Aschaffenburg UAS. The other participants come from our partner universities in France (Université de Bretagne Sud), Spain (Universidad Málaga), Finland (Turku University of Applied Sciences) and Sweden (Mid Sweden University). The elective is hosted by one of these European partners in turn each semester and took place for the first time in March 2022 organised by Aschaffenburg UAS.

 

The motto of the BIP at Mid Sweden University is "Sustainable Business Development"; as a project task, the participants will jointly explore the trends of tomorrow’s sustainable and ethical business as well as leadership concepts and, amongst others, get insights into the Swedish tourism and gastronomy industries.

 

The underlying concept of Total Immersion includes a language taster course in Swedish/tandem partnerships as well as cultural activities like immersing themselves in the Swedish pre-Christmas atmosphere by participating in the famous Lucia Celebration on December 13, 2022 and taking part in excursions matching the motto – in addition to subject-specific and intercultural content.
