DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

Tandem program „Pelican“

Pelican provides tandems of one student and one refugee, who already worked in his/her home country in an academic environment or who is interested in studying at KIT. Through interacting and intercultural exchange, the linguistic competence of the refugees improve, and longer-term encounters with natives are also possible.
