  • Check the dates and length of the summer school and ensure you are free for the entire duration of the course.
  • Keep an open mind concerning the courses on offer and do some research into what they provide.
  • It’s not a holiday; some summer schools require pre-reading and/or exams during the course. Some courses also have an intensive workload which may leave a limited amount of time for socialising.
  • The decision on your acceptance onto the summer school lies ultimately with the hosting university.
  • Course offerings can change from year to year and some courses can be cancelled due to a lack of demand. Please always consult the individual partner universities’ web pages for the most up-to-date information.
