Summer schools and block courses

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: The participants of study trips abroad can obtain funding within the PROMOS scholarship programme. Participants at summer schools and block courses abroad can apply for SHOSTA scholarships.
