This year Masaryk University is offering four online courses at its Summer Schools, which will run from June to August.

Masaryk University is adapting the programme of its Summer Schools to the current circumstances, which lead to a reduction in international mobility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and therefore proposes online training.

During the courses, which will take place from June to August 2020, students will broaden their knowledge of subjects related to the environment, communication, law, or international relations. The courses will be taught by experts in these areas, who will provide a Central European perspective. They will involve students in debates that will help them improve their intercultural communication skills, through teamwork to make presentations on the topics above-mentioned.

In addition, the training will include virtual visits to the United Nations seat in Vienna and Radio Free Europe, where students will attend a conference related to the course content and will be able to ask questions to experts in the field.
