The new EPICUR Service-Learning format aims to broaden students’ horizons and improve their intercultural competences, thus contribute to embedding the European University in the civil society and the third sector of the regions.

In the seminar students apply academic knowledge to understand how a third sector organisation functions and its role in contemporary political systems – the focus here is on the third sector in different national contexts of the EU. The financing of non-governmental organisations as well as volunteering as part of the third sector are further important contents of the course. Acquiring this knowledge is a prerequisite for identifying the resources and needs of community partners. The seminar also offers the students space to reflect on individual experiences in working with community partners and on their own development.

To fulfil the practical part students will complete a 2-month cross-border civic engagement in a partner organisation that is located in the third sector as volunteers (workload 10 hours per week).

Another component of the seminar are two complementary trainings where students can apply intercultural and communication skills.
