Transferable Skills
Time management, stress management, scientific writing, or convincing presentations – all these skills will help you succeed in your studies and job. At KIT, you will find a wide range of courses to acquire a variety of additional skills and transferable skills.

Staying Abroad
Getting to know other languages and cultures does not only broaden your horizon. Intercultural competences are also welcome by employers. Apart from worldwide exchange programs or internships, there are other, less known possibilities to stay abroad.
