International Summer University Courses | Junior Residence Courses | Berlin | Hintersee | Höchst
Dear Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

The concept of University Summer Courses was developed cooperatively between instructors from did deutsch-institut and lecturers from the International School of Management (ISM). The four-week courses offer students from around the world a great opportunity to develop an academic project in the area of culture and civilization under supervision of ISM university lecturers while at the same time improving and deepen their existing German language skills.

During the courses, socially, culturally and economically relevant topics will be discussed that are depen­dent upon the course destination chosen – Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg or Munich. The par­ti­cular combina­tion of language course, university seminar and excursion program allows to ex­pe­rience the relationship between Germany's language and its culture: Cultural theories become tangible, and German skills are tested in authentic situations, either in the seminars or during the excursions.

University Summer Courses Besides the German instructions consisting of 20 lessons per week, each week a total of four learning units are planned for seminars and workshops, in which participants grapple with questions relative to the themes in their particular course. Led by lecturers of the ISM, small-sized study groups conceptualize and produce the project work that will ultimately be presented at the end of the course. Therefore participants may earn valuable ECTS-credits.

The German courses and academic sessions are enriched by an extensive cultural and free-time program, in which themes discussed in class, as well as during seminars, are made tangible for participants through trips and excursions. In addition to exploratory journeys throughout the me­tro­polises, excursions to fa­mous tourist attractions and visits to interesting cultural sites, course participants are introduced to im­por­tant businesses and institutions.

Berlin

There is hardly another city that has changed as much over the years as Berlin. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the formerly di­vided city has be­come, once again, a metro­po­lis. Today, there is little re­main­ing of the former division between east and west. The mo­dern ar­chi­tec­ture of the go­vernment dis­trict presents an exciting con­trast to historic buil­dings. Not only monuments, but also mu­se­ums, el­egant boulevards and alterna­tive districts give dis­tinc­tion to the cityscape. Read more

Hintersee

The picturesque Hintersee is a place where nature can be experienced firsthand. Roman­tically situated in the Bavarian landscape, the mountain lake is an inviting setting for a short walk or as the starting point for a more extended hike or moun­tain tour. With its paddleboats and canoes, the residence for youth offers adventuring and dis­cov­ery opportunities right around the lake, and also has a fan­tas­tic view of the impressive gla­cier across the way.

Höchst

The youth residence in Höchst is located in a former convent, which houses did's classrooms, sleeping quar­ters, and the rooms used by the free-time program. The extensive grounds provide plenty of space to play foot­ball or basketball, to grill out or just to lie in the sun and relax… With the did free-time program coordinator, it's off to Frankfurt, the banking metro­polis, on a discovery tour or to the Odenwald to visit medieval castles and estates.
