Blended Total Immersion Week - Advanced Regional and Transversal Skills

December 2023 in France: Risk

4th Pan-European FWPM as Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme on the Campus of the Université de Bretagne-Sud in France

From December 4-8, 2023 (plus short online preparational and follow-up activities in the days before and after this period), the English-language FWPM "Blended Total Immersion WeekAdvanced Regional and Transversal Skills" will take place for the fourth time as part of the new Erasmus+ programme track "Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)" on the campus of the TH AB partner institution Université de Bretagne-Sud, in Vannes. If you want a city in Brittany that sums up the spirit and beauty of this region, Vannes is a hot favourite. It offers the rich cultural heritage associated with northwest France, a chic harbour that brings the sea right into the city centre, a vibrant student population, plus a sense of historic elegance. Once visited, Vannes is never forgotten.

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 UAS) 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 the Université de Bretagne-Sud is "Risk"; the participants will jointly address questions such as why some people take more risks than others or if risk-taking is a key to success. Risk management is essential in business. A company or organisation needs to identify risks, calculate the potential benefits of risk, decides which risks to take, when to take them and how to manage them etc. During this BIP, students will examine various aspects of risk-taking, risk management and their role in obtaining success on a personal and professional level.

The BIP’s underlying concept of Total Immersion includes a language taster course in French/tandem partnerships as well as cultural activities like immersing themselves in Brittonic-French culture and taking part in excursions matching the motto – in addition to subject-specific and intercultural content.


If you are at least in the 3rd semester of a Bachelor programme at the Faculty of Business and Law and are interested in this FWPM, you can apply for one of the five places for students of Aschaffenburg UAS exclusively by sending in a letter of motivation in English (1 page, Arial 11p, 1.5 spacing) to the International Office (international-office(at) and Prof. Dr. Renate Link ( by 22 October, 2023.
