Summer Schools

  Ulla Bidian  

There are numerous offers from universities worldwide, who use the campus for summer schools during the lecture-free period in the summer.

Participating in stays abroad, that help language acquisition and technical skills, provides you with many new experiences and an improvement in your language skills. You may even decide you want to stay abroad longer.

You may also be interested in our Winter Schools.

Some of the dates are from last year. We update information as soon as a university has sent it to us.
