Course catalogue and info

  Arqus Café (University of Leipzig)

The Arqus Café is a virtual meeting place where students of the Arqus University Alliance can practice their foreign languages outside of language classes. Cafés are not language courses, but an opportunity to use your foreign languages in a relaxed atmosphere and in a small group. Previous knowledge of the language of study is therefore useful, but not a must.

Second term: March 22- July 30, 2021
Info and subscriptions

  Arqus Lounge (University of Lyon)

The virtual Arqus Lounge is an opportunity for all staff to get to know colleagues from other Arqus universities and to talk about current topics, their daily work or problems and perhaps to come up with solutions.

The meetings take place once a month for about an hour. In May: Outgoing mobility: Sharing best practices
