Skills/Course content: “How can I help you to get rid of me?” “How could you worsen your situation?” Although rather unusual at a first glance, these questions are an integral part of the standard repertoire of questions used when applying methods, theories, and mindsets of systemic social work. It is a solution and resource-oriented approach, which is of great importance to social work. It is based on a constructivist view of the world as well an understanding that people have “eigensinn” (ownership of their own perspectives), i.e. they are autonomous. In addition to unusual questions, many other tools of systemic social work will be used in this seminar. By taking part in exercises in small groups, participants will get the opportunity to become familiar with the systemic social work approach and explore its effectiveness and benefits. Throughout the four-day course, active participation is the prerequisite for obtaining credits.

Erfahrungen von Gaststudierenden

“...living in Merseburg has given me the opportunity to go beyond my comfort zone and open myself to new worlds and new experiences."
- María Corrales Gascó from Spain, 2021

"Having spent two months in the lovely town of Merseburg, I had an extremely lively and eventful experience right from the technical aspects of my job to the informal trips organized by the ever-helpful buddies. I made amazing friends over the two months from all over the world, and these connections will always be savored, and I thank Merseburg University of Applied Sciences for giving me the opportunity for this wonderful experience."
- Brain Dsouza from India, 2019

"Responsive listeners and good communicators that are always trying to provide solutions, is how I would describe the employees at the International Office. They made my stay unforgettable."
- Anais Huré from France, 2018/2019

Buddy-Service

Die Buddys (Studierende unserer Hochschule) helfen bei großen und kleinen Problemen des Alltags, z.B. bei Behördengängen, Problemen im Wohnheim usw. Sie organisieren regelmäßig kulturelle Veranstaltungen und zeigen auf Ausflügen die Umgebung von Merseburg. Bei gemeinsamen Koch- und Sportabenden können Sie schnell neue Freunde aus dem Kreis der anderen internationalen Studierenden finden. Die Buddys informieren über Facebook über aktuelle Veranstaltungen. Die Facebook-Gruppe finden Sie hier.

Aktivitäten:

  • Deutschlandweite Ausflüge
  • Campen
  • Kochabende/Grillpartys
  • Besuch u.a. von Weihnachtsmärkten und Museen
  • u.v.m.
     

Abhol-Service: Benachrichtigen Sie uns rechtzeitig, wann und wo Sie ankommen. Wir werden versuchen, für Sie eine Abholung am Merseburger Bahnhof zu organisieren. Vermeiden Sie, an einem Wochenende oder einem gesetzlichen Feiertag in Deutschland anzukommen.
 

Campus

"Before participating in the Erasmus+ Exchange Program in Merseburg, I was quite worried about language, school and exams. After one unforgettable year, I can now confidently say that I don't have any regrets about studying in Merseburg. Friendly students, great buddies, professor's friendly attitude, professional student service from the international office and lots of events for students. I'm really grateful for one of the best years of my student life." Ondřej Svoboda, Austauschstudierender aus Tschechien
