The International Winter University (IWU) Kassel is a three-week academic program which takes place at the University of Kassel from December 29, 2017 to January 18, 2018.
IWU´s academic program features the strength of the University of Kassel – you can choose the Environmental Engineering module or the German Cultural Studies module (4 ECTS each). Both courses are held in English and taught by renowned faculty members of the University of Kassel. Throughout the course, you will participate in various field trips to companies and museums in and around Kassel.
In addition to the academic module, you attend a German Language Course (3 ECTS), which is offered at three different levels, from beginners to advanced (A1-C1).
You will be accommodated in a German Host Family, which provides the perfect opportunity to practice German outside the classroom and to experience authentic daily life in Germany first-hand.
In the evenings, IWU offers workshops like German Dancing or Cooking, as well as an extensive Cultural Program (e.g. Kassel City Walk, movie night, night of games) and excursions (e.g. to Marburg).
The program fee is EUR 2190 (early bird application and payment before October 1: EUR 1990). The fee covers the academic module, the German language course with a daily coffee break in the morning, accommodation in a host family including breakfast and lunch, workshops- and cultural program, excursions, health, accident and liability insurance, a public transportation ticket as well as a 24 hours emergency contact number.
For an extra fee (EUR 295) students can join an optional 4-days Berlin trip to discover the exciting capital of Germany and experience a New Year’s Eve dinner and party right at the Brandenburg Gate!
