Save the Date: On October 29, 2019 the English Department hosts “US Exchange Information Event:Joint-Study and Fulbright” at 4 pm in N.0.27.
Going abroad can be an exciting and rewarding experience for students, but it usually involves a lot of planning. The English Department is organizing an information event for students interested in participating in an exchange program in the United States. Former outgoing exchange students will share their personal experiences with the Joint-Study as well as the Fulbright Language Teaching Assistant program. Additionally, a representative from the International Office at the AAU will provide information about the application process, including deadlines, grants, and other relevant organizational matters. Students will get first-hand information and useful tips on various aspects related to a successful stay in the US.
The Joint-Study program enables students to study for one or two semesters at one of AAU’s numerous Joint-Study partner universities in the United States. Students can benefit from a Joint-Study stay abroad by acquiring additional knowledge, improving their foreign language skills, and enhancing their transcultural competences. In addition, students can get to know other academic traditions and improve their organizational skills.
Fulbright Language Teaching Assistantship
The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistantship Program provides young Austrian teachers and recent university graduates who have completed at least an undergraduate degree with the unique opportunity to spend an academic year at a US college or university assisting experienced professors in the instruction of German. It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience campus life in the US, gain valuable classroom teaching experience, and gain insight into US higher education. The FLTA Program also gives participants a chance to take courses at their host institution and to experience American culture first-hand.
