For the 2020 cohort, students may take a summer school course at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia or the University of Leeds in the UK. Ljubljana Summer School offers accredited courses taught by international academics. Leeds International Summer School combines tuition with field trips, social activities and cultural excursions. Both schools enable students to gain intercultural experience.
This international arrangement is subject to continuous review and change.
The 3-week summer school was a meaningful journey where I gained an understanding of different peoples, countries and cultures and exposed myself to an international academic environment at the University of Ljubljana. I took an introductory course on Business Plan Development with excellent lectures and practical experience. Cooperating with students from various countries not only helped me see the world through “new eyes” but also enhanced my ability to take up cultural challenges.

I was incredibly lucky to study at the summer school of the University of Ljubljana. I did Investment Management and Portfolio Management, and Managing Family Business to expand my knowledge of portfolio diversification and the trend of family business.
There were insightful lectures, field trip and activities held by the school in the evening over the three weeks of the course. My classmates and I also travelled around Europe, in Hungary, Croatia and Germany. That was a precious experience and great chance for me to get to know people from all over the world and different backgrounds.
Leeds is the third largest city in the UK with a perfect combination of modernity and history. Leeds International Summer School (LISS) offers the best opportunity to study and live together with students from all over the world, and to learn about other cultures and values. We had fun and took up challenges during a module that combined tuition with field trips and enabled us to understand more about British culture. We made new friends and share fond memories.
