An online edition for 2021

Between late May and October, around 10 summer schools will be held remotely for health and safety reasons as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. The feedback from our 2020 web-based summer school dedicated to “COVID-19 in Africa: health, economic and political challenges” was overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to further enriching virtual academic experiences in 2021.

All theoretical and practical training will be offered in a digital learning environment. In order to promote integration and networking with fellow participants, online social activities will be organized: most summer schools hold an opening event on the first day to launch the program and then conclude on the last day with a festive activity to celebrate the end of the course.

These fee-paying summer schools are highly selective and demand a notable level of expertise and knowledge in their given discipline. English proficiency is essential and must be equivalent to a minimum B2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference.

Upon completion of the program, students are awarded a University of Bordeaux certificate that attests to the skills acquired during the course.

Research oriented course content

The Bordeaux Summer Schools benefit from strong input regarding format and scientific content from the University of Bordeaux Graduate Research School, a central structure that coordinates the doctoral schools and the entire field of doctoral studies.

A large majority of the summer schools are organized in collaboration with internationally renowned laboratories and institutes that share their expertise with participants.

Bordeaux Summer Schools

Organized since 2012, the Bordeaux Summer Schools offer a range of high-quality, multidisciplinary, international courses for graduate and doctoral students as well as young researchers.

Taught by leading university faculty members who represent a wide variety of disciplines, these sessions allow talents from all over the world to reinforce their skills, gain new knowledge and develop their professional and academic network.
