This is the Class of 2019.

The 2019 session ended with Graduation on 16 August.

Due to changes in the Summer Academy’s management, the next session (in 2022) will differ slightly from those of past years. Still, for a general idea of what to expect during the Course, seen through the eyes of some of our participants, has been recorded in the 2019 Diary.

A general overview of the Summer Academy can be found in our flyer “Summer Academy in a Nutshell“.

Summer Academy 2021 cancelled

It is with a heavy heart that the Foundation has decided what many may have already expected: For the second time, it will not be possible to organize the Summer Academy in terms of a face-to-face event. The Covid19-pandemic still dominates life in Germany and around the world. While the situation and the pertinent rules and regulations in Germany are constantly changing, it is unlikely that the Summer Academy’s participants would be able to travel to Germany without severe restrictions, let alone gather as a group in August. We are deeply sorry and saddened that we will not meet in person this year, and for all inconveniences that the postponement of the event may cause and are grateful for the enduring support and patience from all applicants, faculty and alumni. Let us all hope for a better 2022!
