Intercultural skills

Keen to know how to promote language learning among its students, EPICUR conducted in spring 2021 an alliance-wide survey to understand the incentives of its students to learn a new language. The results showed that the main motivation is the job opportunities knowing languages provides.

EPICUR believes that learning new languages goes hand in hand with developing intercultural competences. Through EPICUR, students and staff have the opportunity to study and to work in an international, multilingual and multicultural environment. This allows them to not only develop and perfect their language proficiency but also their intercultural skills on a daily basis. These competences are highly valued on the job market and provide students with increased job opportunities.
