Internationale Sommeruniversitäten (ISUs)
International Summer University programs (ISUs) are an excellent opportunity for WU students to take part in internationally oriented short programs abroad.
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 and Asia. The programs give students the opportunity to complete a high-quality, internationally oriented academic program.
S – for student 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.

"My journey to Thailand exceeded my expectations. In our interconnected and globalized world, intercultural competence is more crucial than ever. And, for this purpose, is there a better opportunity than gaining first-hand cultural experience by travelling? Exploring Bangkok together with a group of like-minded students and simultaneously familiarizing myself with a major commercial center in Asia, was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
