Summer school: Mix & Match

Admission & participation info

NEW BEGINNING

We are excited to announce that our summer school is in the process of repositioning and rebranding. This change will require us to cancel CuriousU summer school 2023, but we are incredibly proud of our progress and look forward to offering a refreshed and improved program in the near future. We thank all our students and staff for their support and look forward to continuing to serve our community.

Do you want to mix CuriousU courses?

Can’t choose only one from all the awesome courses we offer? Then you don’t have to choose just one, you can mix and match! CuriousU offers the freedom and flexibility of mixing and matching various courses per your preference and liking but has also created some smart packages to help you make the ideal mix and match. See below for some of our smart packages.

Mix and match yourself

You can freely choose which courses to follow for the whole duration of CuriousU! It is really possible that more than one course offered in our summer school catch your attention, match your background and your interest. Choose and mix the courses you prefer so that you can attend more than one, or two or three!
