Stéphanie Condie (Universidad Pontificia Comillas Madrid) and Chan Chun Hin (The Education University of Hong Kong) have attended PH Zug for a semester exchange in autumn semester 2018. They studied within the new English course programme that PH Zug offered to international students for the first time. Stéphanie Condie said about her stay in Zug:

"It has been a very powerful experience and made myself grow. Not only because of the modules here but because of the different experiences that I lived and the way challenges came into my way and how I overcame them. But overall because of the people that I have met here and all the things I have learnt from them. I really feel that this experience has been very enriching and gave me a completely new perspective about life, inclusion, openness and diversity."

Ellen Boundy, Jemima Dunham, Charlotte Dutton und Cassie Furst from Deakin University in Australia attended PH Zug in November 2018 and completed a four-week teaching practicum at the Tagesschule Elementa and the International School of Central Switzerland.

«I have managed to push myself out of my comfort zone and overcome the challenge of the language barrier. I will take all my learnings from this experience in a Swiss school and try to find a way to incorporate the elements I think worked well into my teaching back in Australia. This experience has questioned my pedagogical philosophy and has pushed me to become a better teacher.»

Laura Henry and Kari Alley from Utah Valley University (USA) attended PH Zug in November 2015 and completed a six-week internship at the International School of Zug and Lucerne.

«My experience here in Switzerland has definitely impacted my future studies and profession. Students that come through my future classroom that are learning english as a second language will now be easier to relate to. I also feel I will now better be able to scaffold the learning of English language learners in order to help them better succeed. This experience has also opened my eyes to the possibility of international teaching. I am now seriously considering teaching internationally sometime in my future profession.»

Rhiannon Harris and Tarnee Adams from Deakin University in Australia attended PH Zug in November 2015 and completed a four-week internship at the Tagesschule Elementa.

«The four week teaching practice programme provided a unique and rich learning experience that I will no doubt benefit from both personally and professionally. I especially enjoyed the incorporation of attending PH Zug for one day of the week amongst practicum, this provided special insight into what life may look like for pre-service teachers here in Switzerland.»

«Coming to Switzerland has been 100% worthwhile. It has opened up my eyes to the world around me and allowed me to experience a whole new perspective on education, teaching, learning and life. It has allowed me the opportunity to not only immerse myself into the Swiss style of life, encompassing the culture, cheese and amazing scenery but also experience, teach and learn in a diverse and new environment. It has been inspiring, motivating and engaging.»
