Cologne Summer School "A Digi-Journey through Asia and Germany"


Have you always dreamed of going on a fascinating journey to a different country to immerse yourself in a new culture, get an inside view, taste the local food and learn something that will broaden your horizon while getting to know new people? If this is the case, you're probably disappointed that your dreams have been put on hold due to the ongoing pandemic. 

But it doesn't have to be like that! We have designed a program for you that will bring you closer to making your dream of traveling come true without leaving your home... at least for now! Before you set off to explore the world physically, we invite you to travel with us virtually to catch a glimpse of what awaits you.


About the Program

This year’s edition of our Cologne Summer School in Asia focuses on providing participants with the best possible intercultural digital experience. Even though the travel restrictions and ongoing pandemics are preventing us from travel around the globe, we can still go on a virtual trip to China, India, Indonesia, and Germany. 

The ultimate aim is for participants to acquire basic cultural and intercultural knowledge of the three countries presented within this summer school. Each of the three partner universities launches its first session with intercultural sensitization activities, followed by hands-on history and language classes. The various interactive digital activities include city tours and field trips, cooking, dance lessons, and many more. 

Since some activities are made by students for students, we encourage you to get involved and tell your fellow peers about your favorite place, your favorite hobbies, and your favorite dish. Culture is made by YOU! Through the use of numerous virtual tools, you can extend your digital skills and mix and try out various platforms. 
Join us on this exciting journey and apply now for our first Digi-summer school!



More information about the program will be published in the first quarter of 2023.

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.
