I worked at IHI Zittau (one day per week) between October 2014 and January 2018. I was employed by the Technical University of Dresden to teach Business English to Masters Students at IHI Zittau.
The International University Institute Zittau (IHI) is one of the youngest of the Saxon universities in the Free State of Saxony. It was founded on February 15, 1993. Since January 1, 2013, the IHI has been part of the TU Dresden as a central scientific institution. The basis is a resolution of the Saxon State Parliament of September 26, 2012, within the framework of the new “Higher Education Freedom Act”.
As the central scientific institution of the TU Dresden, the IHI offers master’s courses with the profile “Biodiversity and Responsible Management” in the border triangle between Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany.
At the time of my employment, I was living in Opole – which is approximately 284 kilometers away from IHI Zittau. The University thus paid for my petrol to and from Poland and also for a night’s stay at a Pension hotel in Zittau. After having successfully worked at the University for approximately three and a half years, I decided that driving there and back every week was simply too risky.
