During the Cultural Evening on April 9, 2024 you will be offered the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of the countries Costa Rica & Peru. International degree seeking students and exchange students are going to present their home countries within the scope of so called "Cultural Evenings”.

Since each student will lay a different focus, we are already looking forward to an exciting course of lectures which will point out the cultural diversity at FH JOANNEUM. After watching the presentations, participants can discuss the findings.
