How to apply to the University Programme

The Summer School is currently accepting applications for the 2023 University Programme. Applications may only be submitted via the Summer School's online application platform.

Application timeline and deadlines

The University Programme has rolling admissions. The admission jury meets regularly, and candidates may expect to receive a response within three weeks after submitting a complete application.

Courses are open to admitted students on a first-come, first-served basis and will be closed when they are full. Candidates are therefore encouraged to apply in advance to ensure availability in their first-choice class, if they are admitted. Please note that several courses offered in Summer 2022 were closed after reaching maximum enrolment and not all admitted candidates were able to choose their first-choice class.

The deadlines to submit an application for the 2023 University Programme are as follows:

  • June session: April 13th, 2023
  • July session: May 11th, 2023

  • Explanation of motivation: This is an opportunity for you to explain your goals for your course of study at the Summer School. The text space is limited to 1000 words or less.
