Benefits

That's in it for you

Summer schools bring international flair on campus and help universities showcase their teaching to international students. You dive in the academic life abroad and take classes together with fellow international students – without committing to an entire semester. In a short time, you gain personal experience, explore a subject from a global perspective and make new friends. Summer Schools are usually offered during the semester breaks and take one to four weeks. This summer, many universities in Europe are offering summer programmes again for the first time. Additional language courses and leisure activities make the programmes an even better choice. Finally, the attended courses may also be credited to your Master’s studies.

Summer Schools are perfect if you want to enjoy many benefits of going abroad at once:

  • Affordable and quick opportunity to go abroad
  • Get to know a campus abroad
  • Set up a network of international friends
  • Certificate for your CV
  • Intercultural experiences and soft skills
  • Credit points for your degree programme
