Have you always wanted to conduct the research for your studies, BA, MA, Diploma, Masters or PhD degree, at a location abroad? Our program "Dissertation/Theses abroad” will help you here.
 
 
We offer you assistance in various logistical areas which are often difficult to handle yourself. The following are the things we assist you with. Everything but the work in itself!
 
  • Topic selection: : We have a list of suggested topics List of Topics. This is generally used as a guide, and you can then finalise the exact topic with your university and the supervisor on site.
  • Qualified academic supervisors are available on site, who will help determine a research methodology, so that your research is competed within the stipulated time. The idea is that you successfully conduct the research and travel back with enough time to do the written report for your thesis.
  • A supervisor is available to you on site for at least two hours per week during your research work, for feedback and advice.
  • You get a tutor, if necessary.
    • Access to local resources such as professionally relevant documents, libraries and data.

Who are the supervisors?
 
The supervisors of Dissertations/Theses abroad are all academically qualified. They have appropriate degrees and work experience, including academic work. They are senior executives of organizations or projects, or people who are active in research and teaching on site, in local universities or research institutions.
 
How does it work?
 
We have an ever growing collection of topics of various disciplines Topics in Various Fields, which are proposed by the expert advisors on site. If you have a subject in mind, you can discuss this with your college and continue to define it on site with your supervisor.
 
Once your topic has been approved by your university, you can book your stay through World Unite!.
 
Before your arrival, you can finalise your research methodology with your local supervisor.
 
You get an on-site introduction to the topic by your local supervisor and the exact implementation plan. The supervisor will then be available to you at least once per week for 2 hours to give you feedback, tips and advice for the completion of your research.
 
Advantages:
 
  • You reach your research goals within the specified time
  • You work on issues that are of relevance for the people or the local environment; i.e., you contribute through your research, to the optimization of the work of local Organizations, thus, benefiting your host country
 
What does it cost?
 
The cost for our service package and accommodation are identical to those for Internships & Volunteer work for the country, type of accommodation and length of stay. In addition, a weekly amount for the effort of the local academic supervisor applies (30-50 EUR/week). This weekly amount begins to be paid one week in advance of your arrival, as your supervisor needs to spend time preparing for your arrival.
 
Depending on the type of research, you may entail additional costs, such as:
  • Consumables
  • Transport to and Travel on site
  • Research Permits, where required
Of these, we will advise you in advance.

Intercultural Competence

 
interculturalheader 
 
"Genuine tragedies in the world are not conflicts between right and wrong; they are conflicts between two rights."
Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel
 
With increasing globalization and the increased mobility of people around the world, cultural differences make their way more and more into the everyday life of many people.
 
However, many people are not properly prepared for this and as a result, projects fail where people of different cultures are not working well together, companies incur huge unforeseen costs due to failed assignments, the international development aid (besides other reasons) has burned incredible amounts of money and achieved very little, and many expatriats fail to adjust to new environments.  We have also observed that most difficulties that volunteers and interns face while being abroad can be attributed to cultural differences.
 
Intercultural Competence is too often restricted to superficial "rituals" such as greetings, eating etiquettes, clothing, etc. However, matters of Intercultural Competency run much deeper - to the very mental programming of individuals, their core values and how those dictate their actions.
 
We offer the following service related to Intercultral Learning:
 
  • Preparation materials and videos for all our participants in the Log-In Area of this website
  • Hofstede Culture Compass, a test allowing you to measure your score on the Hofstede 6D Model of Culture and to compare it with the average score of your home country and the country where you want to travel
  • Intercultural Training for Groups in China, India and Bolivia
  • One-to-one Skype Coaching with our intercultural coach
