ICC (Inter-Cultural Communication) 

Intercultural communication is a course that helps to bridge the communication barrier between students from different linguistic and cultural origins. Despite being geographical distance between South East Asia and European countries, the differences in the way of life, culture and religion plays a huge impact on the daily life.

This course helps the student to understand the divergence in order to be able to accommodate to a new environment without experiencing a culture shock, which could lead to a decreasing study performance. Therefore, a special course of 20 hours in Intercultural Communication is offered by the Mercator Office to give insights to the students about cultural differences between Asian and Western countries, whilst focusing on German culture. With this combination, students are well prepared to enter the German education system and cultural environment.
