General information

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 and the Austrian Arbitration Academy in the morning and German language courses in the afternoon. The European Studies courses are held in English and focus on Europe and the European Union. They cover political, economic and legal, but also historical and cultural aspects of the multiple transformations the continent is currently undergoing. The Austrian Arbitration Academy focuses on international dispute settlement by arbitral tribunals.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.

Accommodation

The standard of the houses on campus can be compared to *** hotels. Students are accommodated in comfortable single or double rooms with private bathrooms. All rooms are equipped with a desk. Sheets, towels, and hairdryers will be provided. There are only a limited number of single and double rooms available on campus. Rooms will be distributed according to availability.

Sommerhochschule fees are € 1,800 which include registration, tuition, use of all sports and recreational facilities (including tennis and windsurfing lessons), and all planned excursions.

An additional fee for room and board on campus will be collected by the Sommerhochschule for the host institution (Bundesinstitut für Erwachsenenbildung). This fee includes accommodation and full board (breakfast, lunch, dinner) for the four week program.

Accommodation in a single room: € 1,650

Accommodation in a double room: € 1,350
