Steps to apply

  1. Browse our course catalog   Summer on Campus,   Winter on Campus and select the courses you are interested in.
    You can take more than one course if there is no overlap in your schedule. The possible combinations are displayed on the respective course page. The course tracks (see course structure under individual courses) show the timetable of the courses. A-, B- and C-Track courses can be combined. D-Track courses are standalones and cannot be combined with other courses. Considering the workload of each course, we suggest you to take no more than 2 courses per session. Of course, it is possible to participate in more than one session.  The application deadline varies from course to course. For more details, please refer to the individual course pages. Please note that the course may be fully booked before registration deadline is reached. We therefore recommend an early registration.  If the course you are interested in is fully booked, please contact the HUWISU team about our waiting list and further options.
