Culture Shock & Mobility Workshops are weekly discussion sessions led by international Masters students from the University of Burgundy. They are open free of charge to all students in the FORTHEM alliance.

This is a great opportunity for you to meet international students and learn about different cultures and countries, or prepare for future travels.

During the workshops you will talk about various topics connected with culture, such as:

  • Cross-cultural sensitivity
  • Cultural differences in business
  • Dealing with culture shock when on mobility
  •  Different concepts in different cultures, including ethics, family values, jokes and humour, stereotypes, table manners and food….

 You’ll find more information in our video.

There will be 5 sessions taking place between 10th October and 24th November (you choose one fixed session for five weeks), either on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, from 12.30pm-1.30pm.

All sessions will take place online, via Teams or Zoom. You will receive further information once you have enrolled.

If you are interested, please sign up using the online form. We will then contact you by email to confirm your inscription (please allow up to two weeks in order to process all applications).

The number of places is limited. When you sign up, you are committing to attend all the workshop sessions at the same time every week (excluding holidays).
