  • Working language: English
  • Programme of social events available
  • Absence due to participation in an IW is excused if this would result in overall attendance in a particular course falling below 70%.
  • A completed International Week is recognised for courses specified in advance.
  • The partner institutions set the fees for participation (EUR 200-300).
  • Students have to organise travel to and from the event themselves.
