Admission & language requirements

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.

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 prove the suggested language skills in the registration process. If you doubt if you will be admitted you can use our question-based admission tool prior to your registration.

Scholarships

CuriousU does not offer any scholarships. Please ask the International Office of your (home) University if they can provide you with a scholarship.
