23rd International Summer Academy „Sans Souci“ August 2-27, 2021

Each year in August, the University of Potsdam welcomes international students with advanced German language skills to its International Summer Academy „Sans Souci“ (ISAS). On the historical campus next to the New Palace, students immerse themselves in German language, history and culture. The New Palace in Park Sanssouci is just one of Potsdam’s many UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

ISAS offers a unique blend of German language and applied phonetics, cultural and historical seminars and creative projects. All courses are held in German. Students can obtain 6 ECTS upon completion of the program.

Field trips to landmarks and monuments in both Potsdam and Berlin are an integral part of the program. On the weekend, students get to visit the metropolitan region of Berlin-Brandenburg.
