Summer Schools in Asia

If you are interested in a short-term exchange program, one of our Summer Schools may just be the right choice for you. Fortunately we have exciting destinations to choose from!

Depending on what you are interested in, you could participate in one of the language courses or opt to take a subject class, such as politics, regional studies and mathematics (some are taught in English, some in German).

We regularly advertise five Summer Schools in China which are organized by our partner universities and one which is organized and coordinated by the International Office at UoC. In 2018 and 2019, this Summer School took place at Tongji University in Shanghai.  Additionally, we offer one Summer School per year in India which is likewise organized and coordinated by the International Office. 

Due to the pandemic in 2021, we have offered one summer school in an online format for the first time. This year, the program will also be held virtually in cooperation with the following universities: Tongji University (China), Symbiosis University (India), and Universitas Pembangunan Jaya (Indonesia). More information about the program can be found here.

Other programs on the site have been canceled due to the pandemic. We hope that in 2023 we will already be able to offer the summers schools to you as they were before the pandemic.


Bitte beachten Sie, dass es aufgrund der aktuellen COVID Situation zu Änderung im Ablauf des Bewerbungsverfahrens kommen kann.

Global Responsibility

Global Responsibility combines internationalization with third mission in order to spread and transfer the knowledge generated by the University of Cologne in our local, regional and global networks and contribute to global change. Global Responsibility expresses thereby an attitude, which defines the role and the motivation of a university to act globally. It emphazises that all actions have a global impact of which every individual should be aware of. It is the task of a university to generate and spread knowledge in order to overcome old concepts and raise global awareness.
