International Summer University

July 20 - Aug 11, 2022

International Summer University (ISU) 2021 - hybrid version

The International Summer University (ISU) is an three-week intensive international intensive summer program, offered by Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences each summer usually from July – August. It is open to international and German undergraduate and graduate students of any study program. It is taught in English by academics from Osnabrück and its international partner universities with plenty of professional experience.

While students used to come to Osnabrück for three weeks to join the International Summer University in the past years, the program will take place in a hybrid version from September 9 - October 1 in 2021. In response to the corona pandamic we can only offer the course 

We hope that we will be able to welcome students on campus again with a regular programm in 2022.


This exciting, three-week long International Summer University is open to international and German undergraduate and graduate students of any study program. It is taught in English. It includes for instance:

at Bachelor's level:

  • Economics of Globalization
  • Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability
  • Clinical Perspectives in Physiotherapy
  • Cultural Management
  • Food Lab - Special Food Technologies
  • Applied AI for Non-Programmers
  • Global Marketing Managment
  • Sport Management

at Master's level:

  • Global Healthcare Management

One course must be selected by all participants.

Your course is then combined with classes on German language and a lecture on "Facts about Germany and Osnabrück" and "Intercultural Competence". Company visits, study trips to cities nearby and cultural events complete the program.

We anticipate that the Corona situation will allow for a summer university on campus in 2022 and are planning ISU for July 20 - August 11, 2022.
