International Summer School Programs in Asia

Sometimes spending a full-length semester abroad might not be feasible for any number of reasons. Your busy study schedule or tough academic demands of your home university might not leave room for an entire semester abroad.

You might also be uncertain about committing straightaway to a whole semester overseas in an unknown environment, while still taking part in something more than just a holiday abroad.

Joining a summer school session is a great way of studying abroad for a shorter period of time. You get to experience a new country, learn the basics of a new language, gain friends from all over the world and take some interesting courses at the same time, all within just a month.

Take the most out of your summer

If your plans for the summer are mostly about going on a holiday or perhaps studying a bit more, then a summer school is an effective way to combine the two. It’s more than just sightseeing and lying on a beach, more than just sitting in front of a pile of books the whole summer. You get to take a break from your familiar environment while also feeling that you’re doing something productive:

  • You get to know a new country and culture better than a mere tourist
  • You learn things you wouldn’t be able to learn at home, both in- and outside the classroom
  • You earn academic credits which you have the chance include into your degree back home
  • You get to know people from all over the world who take part in the same program
  • Having participated in a summer school looks good in your CV and showcases to your future employers that you are active and make good use of your time

The international summer school programs at our partner universities take place from July to August each year. Find out more about the programs below.
