Life College

The xpand Gap-Year – how does that work

The Life College is a chance to take nine months to learn, grow and discover what you are truly capable of in your future. Make decisions about what you will do, where and with whom. Each week includes specific learning on the topic of the month and gaining work experience in a local business.


How it works

9 months more time to decide how you want to deal with the future
9 months to spend with other European young people in an English-speaking environment
9 months:
…to live together,
…to learn together,
…to work together. 

We will tackle important issues for our time:

  • Who am I?
  • Where will I go from here?
  • What has shaped me?
  • How can I lead successfully?
  • What will be important for the future?
  • How can I live out my uniqueness?

Because of the inclusion of job placements in different businesses in the area, you will learn the language very practically. We will also have English classes once a week to support this. Optionally for English-speaking participants, there can be German classes.
