Blended Total Immersion Week - Advanced Regional and Transversal Skills

April 2023 in Finland: Resilience – Thriving through Crisis

3rd Pan-European FWPM as Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme on the Campus of Turku University of Applied Sciences in Finland

From April 24 – 28, 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 third time as part of the new Erasmus+ programme track "Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)" on the campus of the TH AB partner institution Turku UAS, in Turku, Finland’s fifth largest city and former capital. Turku is also known under its Swedish name Åbo and is Finland’s oldest university town with traditions dating back to 1640. It is regarded as the best student city in Finland with more than 40,000 students and offers a safe and exciting environment for students to enjoy an active student life.

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 Turku UAS is "Resilience – Thriving through Crisis"; as a project task, the participants will jointly explore how companies do not only survive in times of crises, but also gain a competitive advantage through resilience. In addition to corporate characteristics of resilience, the traits of resilient individuals will also be addressed. The underlying concept of Total Immersion includes a language taster course in Finnish/tandem partnerships as well as cultural activities like immersing themselves in Finnish culture and taking part in excursions matching the motto – in addition to subject-specific and intercultural content.
