The Sommerhochschule’s mission is to provide first class academic courses on European Law, Politics, Economics, History, and Culture in an international and intercultural setting. We seek to enhance the understanding of the characteristic diversity of Europe and the dependence of Europe’s prosperity on the successful development of this diversity.

The international background of the participants fosters the sensibility for similarities and differences – a skill that will be crucial for leadership in the future.

We educate the future leaders of Europe!

The SHS aims at providing a broad multidisciplinary and multidimensional overview of the current international system and to giving an incentive for further studying, to become that driving force that will lead its students towards future investigations, more profound and more specialized in research area."
