Students can obtain up to 10 ECTS points (4 modules at 2,5 ECTS points each). We will publish the module descriptions of the summer school courses in spring. This will allow students to have the course recognition checked at their home university in advance.
We offer students of our partner universities a 50% discount on course fees but all participants have to pay the social fees (150€) as these cover the costs for trips etc. So if your students register before February 15, 2019, they will only be charged 355 € for two weeks of an outstanding program!
In order to strengthen our cooperation and friendship, we have a special offer your students: we could waive the course fees for at least one of your students so he/she would only have to pay the social fees (150€).
Scholarships might be available. Further information will follow in December.
As the Summer School modules do not overlap with our university’s exam period, incoming exchange students are also welcome to apply for the Summer School!

Summer school at the University of Vienna:
will take place from July 14th to August 11th 2018. The four week program offers high level European Studies courses and the Austrian Arbitration Academy in the morning and German Language courses in the afternoon.
The European Studies courses are held in English and focus on Europe and the European Union. They cover political, economic, and legal, but also historical and cultural aspects of the multiple transformations the continent is currently undergoing. The Austrian Arbitration academy focuses on international dispute settlement by arbitral tribunals.
Having seen the academic program of your university, we believe that the courses offered at the Sommerhochschule would complement your university’s course offerings perfectly.
Given the intercultural and interdisciplinary aspect of the summer school our course offerings are, without question, of interest for students from all fields of study, but certainly of special interest for students who concentrate on Europe or study one of the following fields: Austrian Studies, European Studies, Political Science, Law (Arbitration Law, International Law, European Law, Comparative Law), Economics, History, Cultural Studies, International Relations, Interdisciplinary Studies, and German.
Students from all over the world have been drawn to the program, not only because of its outstanding academic reputation and the excellent opportunities it offers students to study German, but also because of its location directly on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, one of Austria's most scenic lakes in the picturesque Salzkammergut region and because of the excellent sports and recreational facilities.
The campus life creates an environment which encourages intercultural and social exchange and favours mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers.
