We would like to introduce you to the univie: summer school – European and International Studies 2021 of the Sommerhochschule of the University of Vienna. The univie: summer school will take place from July 17 to August 14 2021. The four week program offers high level European Studies courses and the Austrian Arbitration Academy and German Language courses. The European Studies courses are held in English and focus on Europe and the European Union. They cover political, economic, and legal, but also historical and cultural aspects of the multiple transformations the continent is currently undergoing. The Austrian Arbitration academy focuses on international dispute settlement by arbitral tribunals. Having seen the academic program of your department, we believe that the courses offered at the Sommerhochschule would complement your university’s course offerings perfectly. Given the intercultural and interdisciplinary aspect of the summer school our course offerings are, without question, of interest for students from all fields of study, but certainly of special interest for students who concentrate on Europe or study one of the following fields: Austrian Studies, European Studies, Political Science, Law (Arbitration Law, International Law, European Law, Comparative Law), Economics, History, Cultural Studies, International Relations, Interdisciplinary Studies, and German. 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 Lake Wolfgang, one of Austria’s most scenic lakes in the picturesque Salzkammergut region and because of the excellent sports and recreational facilities. The campus life creates an environment which encourages intercultural and social exchange and favours mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers. The application form for summer 2021 could be downloaded here. More information about the Sommerhochschule and summer school can be found at our website at http://shs.univie.ac.at.
