Other international opportunities

Summer schools

During summer it is possible to participate in a Summer School. This can be on a voluntary basis, but it can also be accepted as an elective course provided that certain requirements are met.

You can propose a Summer School yourself. An overview of a couple of Summer Schools can also be found on Minerva (Course: FINT> Documents > Summer Schools). However, this does not mean that this Summer School will be accepted automatically.

If you wish to have your Summer School accepted as an elective course, you can read the requirements in the Summer Schools regulations.
