ISU stands for …
I – for International Summer University programs worldwide
Together with its partner universities, WU organizes International Summer University programs (ISUs). Every year, approximately 120 WU students take part in these intensive short programs in important economic regions in Central and Eastern Europe, Australia and Asia. The programs give students the opportunity to complete a high-quality, internationally oriented academic program.
S – for study progress
WU students can transfer credits earned during International Summer University programs to their WU bachelor’s program. A maximum of 8 ECTS credits can be transferred per ISU. For the International Business Administration major, the short program is eligible for recognition as international experience for the International Business Administration major.
U – for an unforgettable experience and fascinating cultures
WU students have the opportunity to improve their soft skills by working in culturally diverse teams together with students of the respective partner universities. Beyond that, contact with businesses, excursions, and cultural events give deeper insights into the economy and culture of the host country. Learn more about the ISUs from the perspective of a student, who participated in ISU China 2019: student's report on ISU China 2019.
"The International Summer University China is one of the highlights of my academic education at WU. I can only recommend anyone interested to apply for an ISU. Not only did the program provide the opportunity to learn about a new culture and to gain academic knowledge, but I also grew as an individual. Looking back to at all the experiences and memories I have made, I feel happy that I have applied to this program."
