Annual Web-Report: Cologne Spring & Summer Schools 2023

22 completed Spring & Summer School Projects in 2023

Cologne Summer Schools proudly presents the annual report about 22 completed Spring and Summer School projects. The high number of 22 short-term exchange programs can compete with the number of projects before the pandemic. In 2023, international short-term programs conducted in presence or hybrid formats at the University of Cologne or abroad at partner universities were highly demanded and Cologne Summer Schools provided partial funding for each project. The CSS-Team is very thankful to all project partners for their effort and hard work to organize Spring and Summer Schools and appreciates their commitment in offering short-term mobility programs to UoC and international students.

The total number of granted mobility scholarships in 2023 is 393. BA, MA and PhD students of University of Cologne and its partner universities worldwide were provided with the opportunity to explore new topics, network and extend their academic and intercultural knowledge. The CSS-Team is more than happy about the achievements and is looking forward to the new summer school season!
