The KU Summer School is intended for students in the areas of German studies and social sciences, but also for professionals and anyone who wants to learn German language and culture. Courses are offered for students with a basic knowledge of German (A2) and other courses for participants with good to advanced knowledge of German.

The program consists of intensive German lessons in the morning and a specialized program in the afternoon (the language of instruction is German). You can choose between Option 1 and 2 with the focus on Regional Studies (minimum requirement German A1) and Option 3 with the focus on Modern German Literature (minimum requirement German B1).

The language courses are supplemented by a diverse specialist program in the afternoon and different workshops and field trips. The courses are taught exclusively by professional German teachers of the KU (trained in German as a foreign or second language). Additionally, you will be supervised by two student tutors during the program (social activities, first-hand tips).
