Summer schools / winter schools

During summer it is possible to participate in a Summer/Winter School. This can be on a voluntary basis (not included in your curriculum), 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 potential summer schools of can be found on this page. However, this does not mean that this Summer School will be accepted as an elective course automatically.

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