We have designed our Summer School to be the best research seminar you will ever take. Our overall topic "Cross-Border Entrepreneurial Ecosystems" will serve as unit of analysis and our USP is to deliver both relevant learning outcomes in theory and practice, in a fun academic environment. Our Summer School will be awarding 3 ECTS in order to achieve the intended learning outcomes that we have set for this one of a kind program, meet the same learning objectives, and cover the same content from an entirely different learning platform.
We are eager to hear from you and ready to keep writing our International Summer School history together!

Is there a limit of students to be admitted? We will have a limit, but we do not want to establish it right now, as we fear that students will then start speculating and refraining themselves from applying, if we get too many applications, we will go through a selection process.
Applying, will not grant a space, but a great application surely will :)
Are there any pre-requisites in order to apply for the program?
Apart from being fluent in English and being enrolled in a undergraduate or graduate program, there are no further requisites. However, since the Summer School focuses on research methods and entrepreneurial ecosystems, the students should be interested in these topics.
At what time will the synchronous sessions take place?
We have not specified the synchronous sessions, so that we can remain flexible towards our international students. It will depend on the countries that will take part, so a more detailed schedule will be sent out once we have received all applications and have selected the final number of participants.
Are professors allowed to participate in the course?
Professors are welcome to participate as observers, but will not be graded, nor assessed in their tasks. We do appreciate application forms on behalf of them along with their line of expertise, research topics, etc. in order to find interesting matches here at the FH Münster and maybe collaborations on their research / project agendas.
How much workload do the students have and what is the ratio between synchronous class and independent work?
After the course, students will receive 3 ECTS. Each ECTS is equivalent to 28 hours and under normal circumstances we would have 1/3 of them devoted to independent work. However, in this case it will be a bit more since we consider it anti-pedagogical to have students in synchronous classes for more than three hours a day. So, we have a structured program that has a balance between synchronous and asynchronous classes, making independent work the heaviest variable in hour load.
When is the deadline for submitting the application?
Deadline is the 21st of April.
Required documents to upload in the application form:
1. University proof of enrollment
2. English level certificate. No specific level or certificate, just a document that shows you can speak and understand the language
3. Short video telling us about yourself
*Local FH Münster students are not required to upload the university proof of enrollment and the English language certificate. However, it is required to upload a file in order to move on to the next question, you can just upload any picture you like, be creative.
