This year's Summer School will take place from June 28th to July 12th again at Seggau Castle (near Graz/Austia) and will focus on the topic "US EUROPE: Towards a multicultural continent".

For two weeks, internationally renowned experts will be at the students disposal in order to disseminate specialised knowledge and stimulate discussions in workshops, lectures and seminars. In this international environment, students will be trained to understand and discuss dimensions of Europe beyond the European Union.

Aims and objectives: Interdisciplinary meeting and cooperation of teachers and students, focussing on East- and South-Eastern Europe and dealing with the cultural and intellectual aspects and dimensions of current European integration. Shaping profiles of future executives in different areas such as politics, administration, economy, science and religion.

-Two-week Summer University for 80 students and 15 teachers.
-2 lecture series, 6 parallel seminar modules, excursion to Graz
-Discussions with guests from the area of culture and politics
-Accreditation via ECTS - credits (2 ECTS for participation & final exam; 4 additional ECTS for seminar paper)

There are places available for eighty students from all over the world.

The International Summer School Seggau is funded through grants given by sponsors and donators from all over Europe. For that reason it is possible to reduce the tuition fee for students to the amount of Euro 360.- (reduced fee Euro 180.-). This tuition fee includes the Summer School programme, meals, housing and a printed report. Travel arrangements have to be made and paid for individually.

Accreditation: As the Summer School is based on the ECTS system, the recognition as a regular part of participants' studies at their home universities should be facilitated. In order to obtain a certificate, students must actively participate in one seminar module and all lectures (recommendation: 2 ECTS). It is also possible for students to write a scholarly seminar paper (recommendation: 4 ECTS). This paper will be evaluated by the academic coordinators to ensure an appropriate level.

The deadline for applications is the 21st of March 2008 (date of receiving!)!

Applications have to be send via normal mail (snail mail) - applications via email will NOT be accepted. Please find more detailed information on the International Summer School Seggau 2008 as well as application forms at
