Admission- and Language requirements

Courses and keynotes at CuriousU are all in English. Therefore, CuriousU is a great opportunity to practice your English language skills! Nevertheless we expect you to have a good command of the English language (e.g. IELTS 6.0, B2, TOEFL 80 internet based test or equivalent). These language requirements are your own responsibility and will enable you to follow the course lectures, write papers and participate actively in the discussions. Therefore applicants do not need to proof the suggested language skills in the registration process.

Our summer school is focused on Bachelor’s students in their second to last or last year, and entry level Master’s students, but is also open for anyone with broad interests and an inquisitive mind.
