Highlights of studying in Bali in the summer
The tropical island of Bali provides a very unique setting for your studies. From the volcanoes reaching up to the sky, to the ancient Hindu temples surrounded by unbelievably green rice terraces, and down to the pristine coastline where the blue waves of Indian Ocean are hitting the white sand beaches and lively reefs, Bali has culture and natural sights to leave any traveler amazed.
In one month, you will be able to earn up to 20 ECTS credits while learning about South East Asia and immersing yourself in the Indonesian culture and society. Being able to show that you studied in Asia will be a great asset on the job market as well.
The BSS program is international, so you will make friends from all around the world and learn about intercultural communication. For many students, getting to live abroad in a new culture for one month is a life-changing experience itself.
If you are interested in studying abroad but for some reason cannot spend an entire semester abroad, Bali Summer School is the perfect solution for you. You will be back home in time for the autumn semester to start, having spent the summer learning a lot about yourself. You might even start to see the world from a slightly different perspective.
