Summer School.

There are countless summer school programs that vary in duration and course fees. Sign up directly with the organizer. To help you out financially, grants and scholarships are also available. So, what are you waiting for?


Summer Schools with discounts or fee waivers in 2024 will presumably be posted in February.

The following scholarships are available to attend a summer school program abroad (not restricted to the programs listed above):

The scholarship is a subsidy to help cover the course fees and consists of a max. of € 250 for programs in Europe and a max. of € 500 for programs outside of Europe.

Apply online, opens an external URL in a new window BEFORE taking part in the program and please submit the following:

  • Current CV
  • Current transcripts
  • A statement as to why you would like to attend a summer school program
  • Course program and schedule
  • Doctoral candidates: Submit a dissertation agreement and statement issued by a professor in the field about the advantages and academic relevance of taking part in a summer school program (this will also replace credit transfer documents)

The amount is a max. of € 100 per month (the course must be a minimum of 10 days long). In addition, you could receive a travel allowance for up to max. € 240 for programs in Europe and a max. of € 480 for programs outside of Europe.
