Coronavirus Information

Status: November 3, 2020

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.

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.

Precautionary Measures

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Aachen in 2021!

Digitalized 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, all 2021 summer programs will have a digital back-up allowing us to conduct our content in a safe digital space, in case international travel restrictions hinder us from doing it here in Aachen.

If you are part of the digital Summer Schools you won't miss to:

online learning platform
interactive online lectures & tutorials
case studies for group work & self study
virtual social and cultural events
mixed/international group

Be informed on the program website, if your course takes place on-campus or in a remote environment.
