Modern societies are diverse, complex, and in a constant process of development and integration which require university to incorporate qualifications in their curriculum which impart the competencies that make them relevant in the career of a professional working in a global world, and at the same time equip the student for exercising an equalitarian and responsible citizenship based on solidarity with fellow citizens.
Intercultural competences can thus be thought of as key competences which are already being introduced into the curriculum and study plans of many Centres of Higher Education in Europe, and which are also now being introduced into the Catalan university (Spain). The psychosocial processes which emerge in intercultural relations and which determine the activity of the professional are in themselves justification for the presence of training for these competences in the university. Intercultural training has its own inherent objectives, takes advantage of a variety of teaching strategies, and generates a wide variety of impacts which have been examined and studied in detail by a number of authors. All of this governs the strategies appropriate to the development of intercultural competences in the university: generic application and the creation of specific subjects which can be articulated over a variety of formats with a high level of flexibility.
