List of Work projects

There are three types of projects:
  • Pure online projects,
  • Tandem projects with one student on-site collaborating with another student working from remote, and
  • On-site projects.


Conditions for on-site participation: Only students residing in Germany can apply for on-site participation in Tandem or on-site projects. Depending on the covid pandemic situation on-site participation in any project can be cancelled at any time. For each project the specific cancellation policy is given in the respective project description.
Conditions for online participation: Students residing at any place in the world can take part. The online work from remote requires internet connections with sufficient bandwidth, for which each participating student has to take care of him/herself.

Duration and dates: The Summer student programme period is July 19 to September 10, 2021. The individual work projects take place within this period but can have a different start or end time. The students are expected to participate during the full period of the projects they apply for.
