Module overview

In a world of fast and easy communication, we are increasingly working and studying alongside people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Understanding our intercultural encounters allows us to develop awareness of ourselves and others, as we grow as individuals, develop new relationships and enhance employability through the intercultural competence we acquire.

Whether in social settings or various contexts of employment, intercultural communication in today's globalised world can challenge our established ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. This module prepares you to react to these challenges, and to understand how culture and communication operate around you.
