Oded Löwenbein Summer School Programme USA

Meet American students from Coastal Carolina University during their short stay in Bonn and combine this experience with a three-week stay at Coastal near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

International experience is needed - but how do I get it?

  • Would you like to make your studies more international without having to spend an entire semester or even a year abroad?
  • Perhaps you have already been abroad and would like to build on the competencies gained during your studies?
  • Is a whole semester or even a year abroad simply too expensive?
  • Are you still a little uncertain about whether you want to take the plunge into cold water for as long as a semester or a year?

Then this short term exchange programme "Oded Löwenbein Summer School Programme" might just be the right thing for you:

Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg
Participants Summer School Programme 2016
  • 3-week short stay at Coastal Carolina University
  • Participation in seminars and workshops in an international context
  • Project work with a local company in the Myrtle Beach region
  • Cultural activities such as excursions, participation in sports events, etc.
  • 1-week counter visit of the Americans in May: You organize the program and get to know the American students.

For many years, the so-called "Summer Schools" of many universities from the English-speaking world have developed into a further education opportunity for international students. Within the framework of such a Summer School, students can acquire or deepen their knowledge of foreign languages and acquire important "soft skills" in addition to additional specialist knowledge.

The idea of the Summer School has been taken on by the Department of Management Sciences, which attaches particular importance to international orientation. With the introduction of Summer School programmes, we have been pursuing the goal of making studying abroad attractive for students since 2001.
