With "GET Across Borders", we would like to invite German Education Trainees, student teachers specialising in English, to apply for an internship in Scotland.
Every winter semester (Sept/Oct to March/April), we send student teachers in their Bachelor's or Master's degree to Scottish schools for six months. Partial funding is offered by the Scottish and German sides.

What can you expect?
- Intensive exposure to the language and culture of Scotland
- Get to know the Scottish school system, other learning cultures and concepts
- Gain valuable experience in teaching practice
(12-16 independent teaching hours per week)
- Acquisition of professional, education-specific vocabulary in the foreign language
- Strengthening of linguistic, intercultural and social competences
- Education to become cosmopolitan and enlightened "global citizens" with the necessary skills for
international competition


An information session on "GET Across Borders" is offered in November each year (please check this website and notice boards). From then on, the application deadline is 15 December.
