Between 1-7 June 2018, Prof. Parichart Sthapitanonda, PhD, dean of the Faculty of Communication Arts along with Deputy Dean and International Programs chairperson, Assoc. Prof. Saravudh Anantachart PhD and vice chairperson, Ajarn Shaw Hong SER led a visit to Macromedia University of Applied Sciences (MHMK) Stuttgart campus, Germany by international program student ambassadors, who will assist in welcoming a contingent of MHMK students who will come to study at the Faculty of Communication Arts in August for one term.
The visit began with a warm welcome by the staff of Macromedia University before the group was taken on a tour of the facilities. The student ambassadors were given an opportunity to gain further insight into the campus’ management course that focuses on giving students a cross cultural perspective. In the session, students were able to share ideas on a wide range of topics that helped create bonds as well as provide a holistic understanding on how to create a cohesive and successful finished project while Professor Sthapitanonda, Assoc. Prof Anatachart and Ajarn Hong were meeting with a coordinator from Macromedia University’s main campus.
Ajarn Hong and the students also gave a presentation to Macromedia students and staff at different campuses around Germany through their online “SurfaceHub”. It covered Chulalongkorn University, the Faculty of Communication Arts and useful facts and recommendations for those who will be attending Chula so they can prepare before leaving Germany.
In addition to the visit to Macromedia University and Stuttgart, the group had the opportunity to tour other cities including Frankfurt and Heidelberg, including Germany’s renowned Heidelberg castle as well as a fascinating film museum in Frankfurt when they weren’t enjoying delicious, authentic German food. Furthermore, this experience allowed all to indulge in the essence of German culture and gain a deeper understanding of their lifestyle. This understanding can help the student ambassadors to assist Macromedia University students adjust when they come to Thailand as well advise them as to the do’s and don’ts of Thailand.
