International Orientation

PH Zug's international orientation has several aims. It prepares student teachers for the increasingly heterogeneous and international professional environment and supports them by offering appropriate training programmes. When it comes to establishing international relations with other learning centres, PH Zug is first and foremost committed to developing pedagogic and specialised expertise and to promoting the competencies that teachers need in order to cope in a heterogeneous environment. Accordingly, PH Zug has exchange programmes with approx. 30 partner institutes in Switzerland and 16 other countries, and it thus uses cooperation as a means for further developing its offers in all areas.

Partnership clusters

PH Zug selects its partner universities based on their areas of specialisation and in line with its strategic goal of providing competency-oriented programmes. It has therefore developed partnership clusters in which the respective institutes work together under a framework designed around particular regional, content-based or level-specific dimensions. This arrangement is intended to address the specific concerns and requirements of the various programmes at PH Zug. By providing for mobility among the clusters, PH Zug expects students and lecturers to develop a stronger motivation with respect to content by enabling them to choose "their" partner university. It also enables visiting student teachers to strengthen a particularly relevant and important set of competencies during their stay.

International Office

The International Office of the University of Teacher Education Zug (PH Zug) cultivates relationships with partner institutions in Switzerland, Europe and overseas as well as in emerging and developing countries. The numerous partnerships are aimed at promoting dialogue, intercultural communication and knowledge transfer. The mobility programmes enable students, staff members of the PH Zug and partner universities to learn more about each other's educational systems and school cultures.

Services

The International Office is responsible for creating a network of partner institutions and for organising exchange activities. It coordinates activities within the framework of the various mobility programmes in which PH Zug participates. In addition to student exchanges, the programme also includes study trips and joint research projects.
