Each year in August, the University of Potsdam welcomes international students with advanced German language skills to its International Summer Academy „Sans Souci“ (ISAS). Within four weeks, students immerse themselves in German language, history and culture.

In summer 2021, the program will be held online from August 2-27.

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 obtain 6 ECTS upon successful completion of the program. The workload for the online summer program is comparable to a regular on-site program with 80 contact hours.
