Students have the possibility to take one optional elective class per session in addition to their core social science or French language class.  See a full list of 2018 elective classes.

Application Fee

In 2018, applicants paid a 30 € application fee at the time of their application. The fee is payable online by credit card at the end of the application process.


The Summer School is not able to offer any scholarships. We encourage prospective students to check with their home universities and local embassies to see if they may secure additional funding.

Refund Policy

All tuition and other programme fees are non-refundable.  In the event of an illness or other medical incident that prevents the student from attending the Summer School, as officially certified by a doctor, the Summer School may exceptionally consider the possibility of a credit for the following summer.
