The Summer Course in the Heart of Europe
The International Summer University at Kassel is a unique short term education program specially dedicated to international students. Every year about 50 participants take seminar classes in one of two specially created modules, focusing on the main issues of the current globalization trends:
- Engineering – Environment and Innovation
- Culture – International Communication and German Culture
According to their personal interest students are able to gain useful insights in the chosen field of study and improve their intercultural communication skills in a highly international learning environment.
The university program is combined with several leisure time activities, such as workshops, excursions and a German language course, which is offered at different levels. Kassel's location in central Germany makes other destinations in Germany and Europe easily reachable within a few hours. Excursions to Berlin, companies or the historic city of Fritzlar are included in the program.
In addition, students will be accommodated at a host family for the time of their stay. Due to this structure the program guarantees a broad and realistic impression of German culture, historical heritage and daily life in modern society.
