Summer Schools

Summer Schools

Numerous universities in Germany and abroad offer participation in so-called summer schools. Summer schools are usually two to four weeks long and can have both subject-specific and general educational content - or a mixture of both. Summer schools usually end with an examination, which may be recognized for your studies after prior consultation with the head of the examination board of your degree program or faculty.

Summer schools are usually subject to fees, although the amount of the fees can vary greatly. Students from partner universities are often granted a discount.

A Summer School offers you the opportunity to gain experience abroad during the lecture-free summer months. This is interesting for those who do not want to or cannot spend a whole semester abroad, but also very suitable as a trial study abroad.

On this page we publish announcements for summer schools of our partner universities as well as some other selected offers and hints.


If you are interested in participating in a summer school at one of our partner universities, please follow the respective steps for application.

Only after you have received an acceptance letter, please submit an online application to the International Office. At the following link you have to register and upload the following documents one after the other, which will be provided in the portal if needed:

1. passport photo
2. signed safety instruction sheet
3. signed information sheet on insurance coverage abroad
4. signed Learning Agreement (optional)
5. short experience report (after completion of the Summer School)

Please make sure to apply for a scholarship in the PROMOS-program by 15 June 2024. Find more information here.
