At this stage, we are planning and hoping to be able to conduct our 2021 Summer Schools on campus in Aachen - and put everything on this card. We would be very glad to welcome you to Aachen and have a wonderful summer experience together; just like we did with our international students before 2020.
Of course we also like to be realistic, indeed, which is why we have elaborated backup plans up our sleeves allowing us to react quickly to the COVID-19 developments here and in your home countries.
✓ experience excellent teaching from RWTH Aachen
✓ network with professors, institutes and industry
✓ get practical examples for everything you learn
✓ benefit from intercultural exchange
✓ learn to know the German way of life
✓ receive a RWTH Certificate
On-Campus Summer Schools
If our 2021 Summer Schools take place on campus and you are part of it, be assured that we guarantee the highest security standard possible throughout all parts of the all-inclusive program:
✓ "all-inclusive" package
✓ face-to-face lectures and exercises
✓ hands-on learning
✓ institute, lab, and company visits
✓ excursions and social events
Once you arrive in Aachen and move into your accommodation you will meet your roommate(s), together with who you build one reference unit from then on. This peer unit will accompany you though the every-day academic program, social events, excursions and free time without any distance. Sticking to all common hygiene rules furthermore allows you to connect with the other participants of the Summer School, build great friendships and enjoy your everyday life in Aachen like a normal student.
Please follow the common hygiene rules:
▶ Wear nose-mouth coverings where mandatory
▶ Stick to your reference unit to protect the whole group
▶ Keep distance of 1,5-2 meters to peers outside your reference unit
▶ Wash your hands regularly
▶ Use hand- and surface desinfection whenever necessary
▶ Stick to hygiene concepts of RWTH International Academy
▶ Follow the regulations at your accommodation and all other service providers
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Aachen in 2021!
distance-learning Summer School - Backup Plan
In 2020 we experienced that distance-learning can also be an excellent option to realize Short Courses - without any boundaries. Therefore, almost all our 2021 summer programs will have a ditance-learning back-up allowing us to conduct our content in a safe remote space, in case international travel restrictions hinder us from doing it here in Aachen. Please check the respective program website(s) for more information.
If you are part of the online Summer Schools you won't miss:
✓ online learning platform
✓ interactive online lectures & tutorials
✓ case studies for group work & self study
✓ virtual social and cultural events
✓ mixed/international group
Process and Communication
Be informed on the program website, if your course takes place on-campus or in a remote environment.
In case we switch the teaching format of our program(s) to distance-learning, we will directly inform our student community about all necessary changes. We recommend to check our website and social media channels regularly or subscribe to our newsletter.
In the event of switching to a distance-learning format, the program fee reduces to a 60% of the regular program fee.
Should you have already paid the program fee at this time, of course you will be reimbursed the difference in fees. Please note that the Early Bird discount or scholarships don't apply to the reduced fee. If you decide not to take part in the distance-learning format, you will be given the opportunity to cancel your participation according to the conditions mentioned in the participation agreement.
