Winter and Summer School
Each Summer all first year students of the current academic year and scholars from the partner universities come together in Europe to participate in the Summer School.
Summer School is an integral part of the programme that aims to bring together all students from Leipzig, London, Roskilde, Vienna and Wroclaw and offer them the opportunity to attend lectures by representatives of the partner universities. Students are also requested to present a proposal for their Master Thesis that will be discussed in working groups together with lectures from the respective universities. Furthermore an evaluation of the programme by the students and representatives will take place and preparations for the second year will take place.
Excursions and free-time activities are organised as well. Students will need to cover for the travel costs to winter and summer school on their own.
During the summer school in Leipzig in 2008 the Global Studies students brought up the idea to bring together all fellow students of the Global Studies programme at an earlier stage than after the summer of their first year in the course in order to create a common identity from the very beginning and to allow thus fruitful and enriching debates among students from all partner institutions. That is how the idea of the winter school was born.
Since December 2008 all first year students of the current academic year and scholars from the partner universities are coming together to attend/hold lectures and workshop sessions as well as to discuss the expectations and experiences made so far in the programme.
