“STARS-Program” for the first time soon in Styria

“STARS-Program” for the first time soon in Styria. The “STARS-Program” is one project of the AAECA (Austrian-American Educational Cooperation Association).

The STARS assistants are student teachers from an American university, who complete a 3 to 4 week internship in Austria during their training.

The Austrian pupils benefit from the contact with English native speakers. The STARS-Program was originally only available for Vienna and Lower Austria. It will also take place in Styria thanks to a lot of preparatory work and organization.

From May 18th - June 15th 2019, student teachers from Arkansas Tech University will be working with our pupils and teachers, gaining work and teaching experience in an Austrian school. They will be immersing themselves in the Austrian culture, and learning about our mannerisms, customs, landscape, traditions and the wonderful values this country has to offer.
