The International Summer Program is located in the picturesque village of Strobl in the Salzkammergut region, one of Austria’s most attractive summer vacation areas. Students and faculty are accommodated in high standard single and double rooms at the program’s beautiful summer campus on the shore of Lake Wolfgang.
The four week program offers high level European Studies courses in the morning and German language courses in the afternoon. The language courses are offered at four different levels of proficiency.
The unique Strobl experience is enhanced by an extensive extracurricular program including sports courses (windsurfing and tennis), mountain hiking, and excursions to Salzburg, St. Wolfgang and the Ebensee Concentration Camp Memorial.
The campus life creates an environment which encourages intercultural and social exchange and favors mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers. The alumni network of former Sommerhochschule participants enables students to stay in touch even long after their stay in Strobl.
