The International Study Program is a six-week-long, intensive and interdisciplinary program in the areas of engineering, agriculture and environmental planning. It takes place at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences each summer semester in May and June. The goal of the program is to introduce students to new ways of thinking about the real-world challenges of sustainability and their potential role in solving such problems through innovative approaches.
The International Study Program is a great opportunity for visiting students to combine practice-oriented studies with an interesting cultural experience and to receive 10 ECTS Credit Points (typically 6 US Credits) in a short period of time, allowing them to pursue other activities, like internships, during the regular semester.
Students of Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences can earn up to 5 ECTS through the program by participating in the intensive workshop held during the project week of the Faculty of Agriculture and Landscape Architecture and the intercultural learning module Living Society.
The academic coordinators of the International Study Program are Prof. Dirk Junker (Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and Landscape Architecture) and Prof. Dr. Svea Petersen (Faculty of Engineering and Computer Sciences) at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences.
