Universidade da Coruña´s International Summer School offers a selection of 26 three-week intensive courses taught by international faculty from 6 to 24 July and from 3 to 21 August 2014, which are open to Spanish and foreign undergraduates, graduate students and recent graduates. Courses are taught in English and have an academic value of 6 ECTS credits (http://www.iss.udc.es/courses). In 2014 the ISS received 160 students from more than 30 different countries all around the world (see http://www.iss.udc.es/students).
Faculty come from different universities in more than a dozen different countries and are renowned experts in their fields. They are active in academic research, consultancy or government (see http://www.iss.udc.es/teachers). Courses are an opportunity for local and foreign students and faculty from different academic disciplines to engage in an international experience and benefit from their mutual interaction in one of the best venues for a summer school in Europe.
The first five students registering in each course will benefit from early-bird fees (33% discount). Universidade da Coruña also reserves a number of partial scholarships covering 50% of the fees for students from low-income, lower-middle income or upper-middle income countries, classified according to GNI per capita, calculated using the World Bank Atlas method.
