Summer Schools Abroad
Gain international experience in a short time
When it comes to studying abroad, one often thinks of several months. There is the opportunity to spend just a few weeks abroad – and gain international experience at the same time! Would you like to go abroad, but not for a whole semester? Then a summer school or a language course abroad is the right choice.
Summer Schools Abroad
Summer schools are the international flagship of universities and offer many opportunities: immerse yourself in campus life abroad and take courses together with international students - without committing yourself to one country for an entire semester. In a short time you will gain international experience, get to know a specialist topic from a global perspective and make new contacts. The programmes often take place during the semester break and last about one to three weeks. Language courses and an appealing leisure programme round off the diverse range of offers so that you can get to know the country even better. In addition, the courses attended can be credited to your studies.
Summer schools are ideal if you want to enjoy many advantages of a stay abroad at once:
- Cheap and short-term opportunity to go abroad
- Get to know campus life abroad
- Build up an international circle of friends
- Certificate for your CV
- Intercultural experiences and soft skills
- Credit points for your degree programme
Registration and costs
Students are responsible for registering for summer schools and further organisation. The costs for participating in a summer school vary depending on the university and summer school and are generally borne by the participants themselves. Participants in the following special formats benefit from funding:
Language Courses Abroad
Whether as motivation or as part of a stay abroad - language courses are a good investment and are even more fun when you're there! Language courses usually last between three to six weeks.
