Are you an educator seeking to broaden your horizons and gain invaluable insights into international education systems?

With Stuttgart serving as the host city, the 2024 Baden-Württemberg Seminar promises to be an unforgettable adventure.

A Window into the German Educational System

During the seminar, which runs from Sunday, October 20 to Saturday, October 26, 2024, participants will delve into the intricacies of the German educational system. You'll have the chance to compare and contrast it with the American system, gaining a deeper understanding of student exchange processes and cross-cultural collaborations.
