There are numerous universities worldwide, who offer summer and winter schools on campus during their lecture-free periods.


The two to six-week stays involve a mix of language courses and cultural studies, and/or subject-specific courses. In addition to gaining valuable specialist knowledge, participation in these courses allows you to deeply experience the language and culture of your destination country and city. In addition, you will be able to participate in numerous leisure activities and excursions to meet and interact with even more people. This gives you the opportunity to build lasting friendships with amazing individuals not only from your destination country but from all over the world.

Under the following links you will find offers from our most important partner universities worldwide. These offers are not complete and will not be updated. If you are interested, please check out the websites of our partner universities and contact them directly.
