Unfortunately, quality education doesn’t come without a price…

InterCultur is a small, not-for-profit organization with the aim to promote intercultural understanding at the core of its mission. We want to offer individual training with close feedback from experienced trainers instead of one-for-all seminars. To be able to cover our costs, enumerate the trainers fairly and keep on spreading our mission we need to charge a fee.

We charge a tuition fee for our intercultural trainer academy of 1.400,-€.

This covers the full 10-day course, including all materials, trainers that are available for individual questions around the clock and the final Intercultural Trainer certificate.

 

 For the face-to-face academies, travel, insurance, visa and accommodation costs are not included. Please ensure that the full tuition fee is transferred to our account by the date stated on the invoice you receive after the registration. Please be aware that banks both in the country of origin and destination of the transfer usually charge international transfer commission which need to be covered by participants.

There is however, the possibility to get funding through grants or apply for “Bildungsurlaub” in Germany! 


Possibilities for Grants

Bildungsprämie (Training Credit)

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds training measures for certain people with up to 500 Euro. As InterCultur is a member of “Weiterbildung Hamburg e.V.” our training measures are qualified for this funding. Please find all information about “Bildungsprämie” on: https://www.bildungspraemie.info.

Erasmus+ Mobility Agreement

In the past, participants who worked for European universities,  have been funded by the Erasmus+ Staff Mobility For Training (Erasmus+ Mobility Agreement).  If you are interested in this funding option, please reach out to your university’s international office. Please note that the agreement form should be sent to us (e-mail address: info@intercultur.de), at least six weeks before the program starts. We will sign it and return it to you.
