The Sommerhochschule of the University of Vienna has fixed its annual summer program.

Students from all over the world have been drawn to the program, not only because of its outstanding academic reputation and the excellent opportunities it offers students to study German, but also because of its location; directly on the shores of one of Austria's most scenic lakes, Lake Wolfgang, in Austria's picturesque Salzkammergut region, and because of the excellent sports and recreational facilities.

The European Studies Program offered at the International Summer Program consists of two two-week sessions. Six courses with 30 contact hours each are offered during each session. The German language courses last both sessions and consist of 60 contact hours each.

In the course of the four week program students are required to complete one of the following options:  

  1. three European Studies courses (out of twelve offered), or
  2. German I, II, III or IV plus one European Studies course.

The European Studies courses are held in English and focus on the emerging New Europe. They cover political, economic, and legal, but also historical and cultural aspects of the multiple transformations the continent is currently undergoing.

  • Applicants have to be at least 18 years old and must have completed two years of studies at college or university level in their countries of residence or have an educational background equivalent to one year at a European university before the beginning of the program. Official copies of transcripts from each institution attended must be submitted with the application.
  • Applicants must be available for the whole period of the International Summer Program, be able to take part in the number of required courses, have an adequate command of the English language and be in good health.
