Summer schools consist of several-week-long events during the semester break. Various topics are offered often within the framework of symposia and conferences. They serve for further education or consolidation in a specific subject area.
Participating in a summer school abroad is an extraordinary experience and an ideal opportunity to gain insight into a foreign country and everyday life at an international university. In addition to the events, the summer school programmes usually include exciting excursions in the surrounding area, so that you can explore the culture, the country and get to know the people first-hand.
Other advantages of summer schools include:
- Establishing international contacts in the professional field and in the research area.
- Exploring international universities for a possible semester abroad
- Exchanging ideas with international scientists and fellow students
Summer Schools do not offer a qualifying degree and are not a substitute for modules and examinations of your MSB programme. When participating in a summer school, the focus is on independence: interested students should conduct their own research on summer school offers and come to the International Office for advice with concrete ideas. The staff of the International Office can then arrange additional contacts from the network of the MSB Medical School Berlin or refer to other people of contact. The International Office can also support in the application process and in contacting international summer schools.
Host universities of summer schools often provide help with the individual content and organisational preparation (many summer schools provide preparation material and help in the search for accommodation, etc.).
