Summer Schools

  Copyright: 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.

 

IDEA League

The IDEA League is a network of five leading technical universities in Europe: TU Delft, ETH Zürich, Chalmers University of Technology, RWTH Aachen, and Politecnico di Milano.

Every year the IDEA League offers summer schools for students and doctoral candidates of its partner universities. Online applications can be submitted via the IDEA League website. Target groups for the summer schools include Master's students and doctoral candidates.

You can find an overview of the summer schools offered and the application requirements on the IDEA League website.
