Since 2012, EUSMAT hosts an annual Integration Week for new AMASE students in August before the start of the semester. The Integration Week focuses on preparing the new AMASE students for their studies in Europe as well as giving them first insights into the AMASE-Master Programme.
Students will also have the chance to get to know each other. The EUSMAT team is present at all times and answers any questions that come up. The experiences gathered during this week helps the students improve their future research skills while also expanding their personal and professional network.
In 2020 and 2021, the Integration Week was held in digital format due to the COVID 19 crisis. Since 2022, the Integration Week is held in two parts: a first part in digital form and a second in-presence part in Saarbrücken. Since the circumstances in our programme countries are very different and not predictable, we opted for this alternative in order to provide all of the participants with a well organized IW and give them the opportunity to get to know each other beforehand. Also, the IW is arranged parallel to the Professional Summer School (with the 2-year students).
AMASE Integration Week 2023:
19th August – 26th August
➡️ Digital part of the IW will take place on August 9th and 10th, 2023.
➡️ In presence IW will take place from August 19, 2023 until August 26, 2023.
Don’t worry, besides the informative parts we will also organize fun parts and excursions!
ATTENTION! The participation in both the Integration Week and the Professional Summer School is compulsory and part of the Programme.
The registration for this year’s Integration Week will be open in June.
Impressions from past Integration Weeks
Every year, EUSMAT organizes one or more Orientation Weeks for the different study programmes. During this week, the students taking part are prepared for their stay abroad. Intercultural training plays an especially large role in this preparation.
