We offer seminars, academies and workshops, promote work experience schemes in Africa, Asia and Latin America and support students in the organization of public events in their cities.
The program is making a contribution to the professional qualification and thus to the reintegration of the students in their home countries. We are accompanying the students at an early time and for a long term and, by working together, are establishing a meaningful professional perspective for the time after their return to their home countries. STUBE Hessen supports the students to make use of the knowledge acquired in Germany in their countries of origin.
