As a rule, we strive for a flexible multilingualism in Unite! which includes: English as the dominant language of instruction at M.Sc. and Ph.D. level, as well as the local language and culture of the partner university. As an alliance we aim to promote common European values and a strong European identity. That is why the Multilingual and Multicultural Training Center helps the student community by offering them the guidance and services necessary to ensure the integration and promotion of culture through language. These series of Virtual learning tools and Language learning are aimed to help students within Unite! develop the linguistic and cultural competencies it takes to thrive and enjoy the benefits of living together in a globalised and culturally diverse world.
