Tandem+ Programme

The Tandem+ Programme is designed to offer all students the opportunity to participate in a recognised intercultural programme (2 ECTS) in a relaxed and exciting atmosphere. For example, the Tandem+ Certificate can be credited towards the ISC (Intercultural Skills Certificate).

Learning outcomes

Get together! The Tandem Programme at FH JOANNEUM brings together people from different cultures and different languages since October 2006. The aim of Tandem partnerships is to facilitate language, experience and cultural exchange. Although many students at FH JOANNEUM are aware of international (exchange) students attending their university, only very few of them make the first step in getting (culturally) closer. We would like to change this with your participation!

Assessment methods and criteria

In order to obtain the Tandem+ Certificate from FH JOANNEUM, you need to be an (exchange) student at FH JOANNEUM and demonstrate that you have completed activities from the five Tandem+ Modules. The five modules represent different skills in an intercultural and linguistic context and should be completed during one semester - the Tandem partnership can only be started at the beginning of the semester. Iit is not possible to start during a semester! It is therefore advisable to familiarise yourself with the criteria and requirements before the semester begins. A checklist can be found at the end of the page! Participation in the Tandem+ Programme is binding from the point of allocation of the Tandem partners which takes place during the first week of the respective semester. Participation in certain sessions is mandatory as part of the Tandem+ Programme. The activities available can be freely selected in consultation with the Tandem partner. Completion of activities accounting for at least 50 points is required in order to obtain the Tandem+ Certificate.
