Summer and Winter Schools

Summer and Winter Schools

Summer and Winter Schools are short and intensive mobility periods. Unlike BIPs, students will not be awarded with ECTS at the end of the mobility period and there will be no funding from Erasmus+ though each institution might have a dedicated budget for these schools for students.
