meet2succeed - Subject-specific Tutorial Programme for International Students in English-language Master's Programmes
In the framework of the DAAD-funded project "meet2succeed", the International Office is currently setting up a subject-specific tutorial programme in English-language Master's degree programmes in cooperation with the departments. The aim of the programme is to make it easier for international JLU students to get started in Germany and in the German higher education system. This STIBET II model project focuses on five English-language Master's programmes at two departments, in particular the Anglophone Studies and Choreography and Performance programmes at Department 05 and Agrobiotechnology, Insect Biotechnology and Bioresources and Transition Management at Department 09. The offer is aimed at international students of these Master's programmes in the 1st and 2nd semester.
Three building blocks of the subject tutorial programme are:
Experienced students from higher semesters support international first-year students in subject-related and non-subject-related matters. The offer ranges from subject-specific topics to technical applications:
- Deepening subject-specific content
- How do I hold a presentation, write a term paper or prepare a portfolio?
- Academic writing
- What is plagiarism?
- Stud.IP and ILIAS, MS Word, MS Excel
The tutorials are offered during the first year of study and as block courses before the beginning of the semester or before exams.
2. Status talks
Each student is given the opportunity to discuss their individual study situation in a personal interview. Possible topics of discussion include finding one's way in the German higher education system, academic challenges, current difficulties, aspects of immigration law and social integration. All students are invited to two interviews.
3. Language courses
Good German language skills are essential for good integration and for gaining a foothold in the German job market during or after graduation. A sufficient knowledge of English is also a necessary basis for successful studies. Specially tailored language courses are offered.
When attending several modules, it is possible to receive a certificate for the personal curriculum vitae. Participation in this programme is strongly recommended for successful studies. All offers of the programme are completely free of charge for students.
