Short stays abroad
Summer schools, workshops and block courses abroad represent study opportunities that are short and they usually take place at times when there are no lectures in Kassel. These short periods of study have one thing in common: they offer an intensive tuition/learning format in an international atmosphere where typically results that are relevant to credit points can be obtained.
You can find a summary of what is available at summer schools and block courses at European universities here.
Information on accreditation: Make sure in advance from the responsible members of your faculty whether the results obtained there (ECTS) can be accredited as part of your studies.
Information on funding: Participants at summer schools and block courses abroad can apply for SHOSTA scholarships.
Study trips abroad should not only communicate information related to your studies, but also promote an understanding of the host country and provide an opportunity to meet students and academics in an international setting. The study trips are organised and made available by the faculties.
Only those teaching at the University of Kassel are entitled to apply for funding for study trips.
You can obtain all the relevant information and conditions for applying here.
Language courses during the semester break provide good opportunities to learn a language in the every day life. Via the internet, you can research various providers and placement agencies of language courses. If you need support with your research we are glad to help you at the information desk at the International Office.
