As part of studies within the College, it is possible to take part in multi-cultural seminars with students from other countries as Northern Ireland, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany and Norway. The seminars are dialogue-oriented in essence and in each and every one of them, three main circles overlapping in various places: inter-personal encounter, pedagogic concepts and approaches and a unique dialogue adjusted to the seminars entire participants. The participants go on a journey during which they find their personal, group and professional identity.
