International Summer School - Meet the World in Bremerhaven!

The International Summer School offers education in a relaxed and cross-cultural atmosphere for young people. Undergraduates, graduates, young professionals and lecturers from all over the world come together in Bremerhaven for 2 weeks in the beginning of August for cultural exchange, learning and of course to have fun. After successful completion, participants can receive 5 ECTS and a certificate, as well as an unforgettable experience.

Why Bremerhaven?

There is not only a lot to learn in Bremerhaven but also a lot to experience. Bremerhaven’s exclusive location on the coast provides a large spectrum of maritime sports and activities. Indeed, the wide variety of sports and cultural events in and around the city leaves no time for boredom and nearby beaches offer delightful destinations for a day out. 

Everything is easy to reach in Bremerhaven. The beach, the harbor, the city center, museums, various restaurants and cafés in this seaside city are located in direct vicinity of the university.
