The text is about the problem of implementing interculturality not only in teaching and learning but also in operating international / intercultural joint degree programs. In all sectors and on all levels in academic practice there is an astonishing lack of experience with »the other«. Even some theories on cultural differences are rather perpetuating stereotypical thinking than helping to understand each other. The main thesis of the article means that one has to take the examination about experience(s) to aim for better intercultural competences in academic practice and for bridging the gap between scientific knowledge about culture and our daily behavior while ruling intercultural study programs.
