Germanic Studies at Sheffield University is currently developing a unique collaboration with local businesses as part of the Final Year Language programme.
Businesses in Yorkshire, Lancashire and the Humber with trade connections in Germany or Austria, or those companies keen to expand into the German market, are invited to work with our students on a language-business project: German for Enterprise. Germany is the UK’s second biggest trading partner so this is a prime opportunity for Sheffield students to get acquainted with the UK’s export drive, and for local businesses to get the edge in doing business with German-speaking companies.
The content of the project is based around the unique business needs of the participating companies. Selected businesses team up with the Year 4 students with the full support of the University’s language experts as well as the Sheffield University Enterprise Unit.
Halton International and Fokus Sheffield have already benefited from engagement with the project, and recommend local exporters find out how it can help them too.
Information on the project is available on the Sheffield University portal here.
