Modern Languages & Cultures student Isabelle Adlam has won a DAAD Summer School scholarship and will spend a month taking intensive German language and culture courses in Heidelberg. Every summer, a number of German universities offer a broad range of three- to four-week language courses which cover several aspects of contemporary German Studies, from its literature and culture, to its politics and economics. Students are encouraged to take part in the extra-curricular activities which run alongside these courses. The grant awarded is €850 and is intended as a contribution to the course fees and living expenses for a three- to four-week summer course.
Isabelle came to Liverpool from West Sussex in September 2015 and is currently reading for a degree in Modern European Languages. She is studying French, Spanish, and German.
This is a great opportunity not only to improve my German language skills, but also to make new contacts from multiple foreign countries and to learn about contemporary German culture first-hand.
The application process for a summer school scholarship in 2017 will open in October 2016 and isare open to all full-time undergraduate students in UK universities who reach the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages thresholds, namely A2 for beginners and B1 for those with some German. Interested students or personal tutors who advise potential candidates are invited to contact Anke Bohm (firstname.lastname@example.org).
