Rachel - 2017

The Sommerhochschule was one of the best experiences of my time at university. We spent the best month by a beautiful lake in Austria swimming, hiking, taking waltzing classes, playing tennis and studying interesting courses on European law. I made so many incredible friends and we have so many hilarious memories of dressing up in dirndls and lederhosen and going to the local festivals. I definitely would recommend this to anyone to wants to do a short-term program.

James - 2017

Academically, it was great to explore new areas of law that aren't available at UQ, in a setting with students from a whole range of different legal systems.

On a personal level, I had a fantastic time studying with students from across the world while living in a summer paradise. Swimming, rowing, windsurfing, hiking and waltzing were just some of the great activities on offer.
