The series of guest lectures “Seven months, seven universities” launches the second episode of the new edition: “Language Students in Work Practices: A Course” by Kari Soriano, associate professor, and Hanne Svanholm, advisor, at the University of Bergen. The webinar will take place online on 24th February at 10:00 am CET.
Students of foreign languages learn skills and competencies independent of a specific sector. In the increasing globalization the world has experienced during the last decades, this means that their future is open to jobs in many fields such as administration, tourism, industry, museums, services, banking, schools, and universities.
This seminar will present a course offered at the University of Bergen specifically designed to connect students who wish to earn credits through internships with different companies and institutions. Language Students in Work Practices aims to demonstrate the professional competence that language studies provide through work practice abroad or in Norway. Through observation, interaction, professional practice, reflection, and guidance, students gain a better insight and awareness into their professional role in the workplace.
