The University of Gothenburg's very first Summer School for Sustainability has now been completed - entirely digitally. It was very successful! More than 180 students from over 20 countries studied together throughout July.
Since our Summer School is here to stay, we are already working with 2022’s edition. We will update this page with more information as soon as possible, so keep checking back!
Please note: the information below applies to the summer of 2021 and will soon be updated for the summer of 2022.
The summer school offers a programme of courses and digital activities to create synergy around sustainable solutions and encourage interdisciplinary collaboration.
The courses are open for students from our partner universities and for those who are eligible to apply for courses through the Swedish national system. You find information about how and when to apply as an exchange student from our partner universities below.
You will be able to get accepted for one 7,5 credits (ECTS) course, running over a four week period. The courses start July 5 2021 and end July 30 2021.
The courses are free of charge for all students from our partner universities and for non-paying students from Swedish universities. Please note that if you are a fee-paying student at a Swedish university, you will be obliged to pay tuition fee for the summer school courses.
All courses offered will focus on the issues relating to the Sustainable Development Goals and will provide a challenging and rewarding academic atmosphere for you to develop knowledge around contemporary sustainability challenges within your own academic discipline as well as skills necessary to contribute towards fulfilling Agenda 2030.
All courses are on Bachelor level and taught in English.
Please note: Most of the course leaders and teachers are planning to record the lectures to at least some extent, so problems with different time zones can be met as well as possible. Please click on the courses and check the preliminary schedules. If there is more information about course content being available online for students, it will be indicated there. All the information will be updated regularly.
You will receive a Transcript of Records when the course is completed.
