Berufskolleg Nord der StädteRegion Aachen Herzogenrath
The unique location of the vocational college Herzogenrath in the border region Meuse-Rhine as well as the globalization of the labor market is the main emphasis of our work. Being a European Erasmus+ school, preparing our students for the various job opportunities and living conditions our border region offers, is especially important to us. In order to make use of these possibilities, we highly promote foreign language learning and developing intercultural skills.
Alongside courses in English and Spanish, we therefore offer courses in French and Dutch as euregional languages in almost all of educational programmes. To further promote language and intercultural skills, our students take part in internships abroad that last two or more weeks. In addition, students can obtain the KMK-certificate in foreign languages.
Moreover, we offer internships abroad for our students in the dual educational system. We closely cooperate with partners, schools and companies in Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Spain. This cooperation allows our students to gain first experiences abroad which are important for their work-related and personal development. Early on, our students can test their language skills in our exchange programs with foreign partners in France, Belgium, Poland and Spain.
Exchange projects with our partners in France, Belgium, Poland and Spain enable our students, including full-time students, to test their foreign language skills in direct contact.
