Academic short-term programmes are becoming increasingly popular, enabling students to attend subject-related courses abroad during the lecture-free period and thus broaden their own horizons. Depending on the programme, it may also be possible to credit services rendered; however, you should contact your examination board in advance. Many of the approximately 150 partner universities of Schmalkalden University offer so-called Summer Schools, which are announced by notices or by e-mail.
