Summer Schools

Summer schools have been one of the main tools to promote student exchanges, specifically from the outgoing student perspective. For this reason, various summer schools that cater to a large range of interests have been organized in India since 2013. In an effort to synergize different regions of the Global South, members of the China-NRW alliance are also invited to participate in the summer schools in India. Since 2015 – 2019, each year summer schools were organized in India with partner Indian universities on various themes and topics.

Due to COVID pandemic restrictions, a virtual summer school was, for the first time, organized from August 23rd to September 22nd, 2021, in cooperation with Symbiosis International University (India) and Pembangunan Jaya University (Indonesia), titled “A Digi-Journey through India, Indonesia and Germany”.
