The Bangkok Summer School or in general any Summer School is a great opportunity to broaden someone’s horizon without having to commit to a full semester abroad. Furthermore, it is the perfect combination between academical and professional development as well as having fun, making meaningful connections, and getting out of the own comfort zone.

The Bangkok Summer School helped me to overcome my own personal limitations and get involved in something completely new, which I have never done before (...) These experiences and impressions have shaped me for life and will continue to encourage me to engage in new things and grow as a person.
