The CAWEB Master’s degree is truly global. The six languages offered in the program open up opportunities for our students to work in international companies. In fact, the CAWEB Master’s has several international partnerships, and organizes study trips to relevant locations around the world, including Silicon Valley. During these trips, our students have direct contact with innovative web companies.
Since 2011, Master CAWEB has been in close cooperation with the University Herzen of Saint Petersburg in Russia. Thanks to this partnership, a Russian-speaking student enrolled in the Master 2 CAWEB program now has the opportunity to study in Russia for the second semester, from the beginning of February to the end of April. The student studies languages and localization while experiencing total immersion in the country’s culture. This very formative experience is also an opportunity to gain work experience in Russian partner companies such as SemRush, a leader in SEO.
As part of this exchange, the CAWEB Master’s program also welcomes students from the University Herzen in its localization courses and exchanges lecturers on a short-term basis. Regularly, Herzen graduates complete their degree with a second year in the CAWEB Master’s program. The cooperation between Saint Petersburg and Strasbourg runs deep, and allows for established long-term exchanges.
The CAWEB Master’s degree offers second-year EAD (Distant Learning) students with Italian as a second language, the opportunity to participate in an Erasmums exchange program with the University of Bologna (campus Forlì). Students can spend 5 months in the second semester studying translation and localization in the partner university. Technical courses, which include web development and webdesign, can be followed via the distance learning platform of the CAWEB Master’s program.
As part of the Erasmus exchange, CAWEB welcomes an Italian student into the first semester of the Master 1.
Since 2015, CAWEB has organized an anual study trip to San Francisco, in collaboration with Intern Abroad – an organization specializing in student placements in the USA.
Meeting with some Silicon Valley-based companies, such as Google and Facebook, allows students to take a closer look at the web industry, discovering new practices and finding out which skills these companies are looking for.
This formative experience opens up new professionnal perspectives for our Master 2 students, whose technical and linguistic skills are highly appreciated by American recruiters.
A cooperation with the Hochschule Anhalt in Köthen (Germany) allows students and lecturers to attend their famous Spring School, and to follow a 30-hour distance learning course on the localization of graphic user interfaces.
Resources and contests
As a member of several associations and international organisms, the CAWEB Master allows its student to use platforms as ELIA Exchange, to go to trade fairs organized by Tekom Europe, to use several resources offered by GALA, or to participate in video contests as the “Rising Star Contest” and “Shoot Me Now™”, a mobile and international video project created by our partner in New Zealand in 2010.
