Competence Centre for Teaching in English

The Competence Centre for Teaching in English at the Technical University of Applied Sciences, Wildau, was set up in August 2010. The project is being financed by a target agreement between the Technische Hochschule Wildau—University of Applied Sciences and the Brandenburg Ministry of Science, Research and Culture.

The main purpose of the project is to support professors, teaching staff and other employees at the UAS Wildau as well as across the other universities in Brandenburg in aspects concerning teaching in English. The project aims to further the internationalization of UAS Wildau and the universities in Brandenburg. An important element of internationalization is to provide lectures and classes in the English language for all subjects.

The project is led by Wiktoria Allan in co-operation with Greg Bond, Head of the TH Wildau Language Centre.
