International Project Week

Internationale Austauschstudierende auf dem Campus

Virtual team collaboration and intercultural communication in challenging times

The COVID-19 pandemic has put us on a fast track to acquiring new skills in all walks of life. One thing we all encountered was the need to communicate virtually while building rapport. Virtual communication and collaboration however are here to stay and will grow in importance in the future even when the pandemic is over. Given the great success of 2021/the great feedback we received from participants of our first virtual IPD we will build on these topics and continue to create a supportive, motivating international learning experience for students of Aschaffenburg UAS and (virtually) incoming students from our partner universities.

  • Mixed virtual, international students teams
  • Online learning experience and practical application of the learning content    
  • Useful input from international experts from the world of business and academia    
  • Exchange of ideas and experience across different cultures    
  • Opportunity to gain 2 ECTS for undergraduate students of Aschaffenburg UAS and international students from partner universities

Assessment international students

2 ECTS will be awarded upon successful participation of the International Project Week. Students will be evaluated based on their participation in the respective projects (pass/fail).


Students from our (Erasmus+) partner universities will not pay any programme or tuition fees.


If you are an undergraduate student, you can apply online by 15 March 2022. Please note that we can only accept a limited number of participants.
