EPU | Summer schools | Chinese Austrian EU summer school

Group 1 to 6:

July 12th to August 9th 2019

Application deadline: April 1st 2019

​Since 2002, the Chinese Studies Center in cooperation with Eurasia-Pacific Uninet has annually organized the Chinese-Austrian EU summer school for students from Chinese member institutions.

The summer school is designed for Chinese students who want to deepen their knowledge of Europe in general and of Austria in particular. During their stay, students have the great opportunity to visit Austria (Salzburg, Vienna, Hallstatt, and Wolfgangsee), as well as European cities like Munich, Prague, Heidelberg, Paris, Strassbourg, Venice, Verona, and many more.

Lectures are held by experts at the European Court of Human Rights in Strassbourg, as well as at the Austrian Foreign Ministry. Furthermore, the students will take courses at the University of Vienna, at the University of Heidelberg, at the University of Venice, at the Paris Descartes University, and at the University of Salzburg, aiming to broaden their view of the European cultures and customs.

Participants get information about Austrian history, literature, politics, and law, as well as economy and music. This range of courses, together with visits to the United Nations, the Musikverein Vienna or Schloss Schönbrunn and Schloss Hellbrunn guarantee many insights and great experience. Sightseeing in other European cities is, of course, also a part of the program.

Since all lectures are held in English, a good command of written and spoken English is a fundamental prerequisite for participation.

The fee for the participation in this program amounts to approx. €3.200,- (without airfare and visa fees).

The deadline for the payment of the program fees is May 1st 2019.

If we do not receive the program fee from a participant until May 1st 2019, we reserve the right to hand the spot to another student on the waiting list. Please be informed that there are also cancellation fees to consider. For further information, please contact the team of the Chinese Studies Center (see contact details below).
