Summer Schools

Spending a short stay abroad is very popular. Summer schools offer the ideal opportunity to combine a stay abroad with the acquisition of practical experience. If the content of the respective summer school meets the requirements, it can be recognized either as a research internship or course at the University of Mannheim. We will be happy to advise you on the subject of summer schools.

Please take note of the topics Selecting Courses for Your Stay Abroad and Recognition of Credits Obtained Abroad. For further information on other summer schools and financing options please see the website of the International Office.

In summer 2018, I participated in a summer school at the NDHU University in Taiwan. This was a great opportunity for me to immerse myself in a foreign culture and learn a lot about the eventful history and intricate political situation of the People’s Republic of China. In the morning, we attended lectures at the university and in the afternoon, we had sufficient spare time to explore the impressive landscape surrounding Hualien on our own. Furthermore, we had the opportunity to take part in larger excursions: for example, we watched dolphins, tasted indigenous food or hiked through a breathtaking national park. Despite our diverse activities, the exchange within our international group of participants and the conversation with students from our host university never went too short. The summer school thus was a wonderful and enriching international experience.
