Give students an opportunity to make the best use of semester breaks and holidays
Avoid delays and allow students to complete their degree program faster
Make use of the university’s room capacities during breaks and holidays
Offer block courses for students with a full-time or part-time job
Courses are organized on a short-term basis and are offered based on demand, i.e. courses that were fully booked during the semester and are in high demand are repeated during the acceleration program. Courses focus mainly on general business administration, law, and economics.
Summer University programs are held every year in September, allowing WU students to attend courses during the summer break. Most courses are held as block courses of only several days or weeks. Course exams are usually scheduled during the first exam week of the winter semester (in early October).
Summer University for first-year students
Some Summer University courses are also available to first-semester students, allowing them to get a head start on exams from the introductory and orientation phase (STEOP) before starting their program in the fall.
