“Well-trained and highly motivated teachers are the backbone of any education systems. The increasing cultural heterogeneity in Switzerland has changed the requirements for today’s teachers. The prospective teachers require strong intercultural competences to meet those requirements. According to studies, intercultural competences are ideally developed abroad.

One of the reasons for the low participation is that the current mobility programs offered at the universities are not tailored to the needs of prospective teachers.“
