Virtual Exchange for Students
“During my time in Göttingen I learned so much in just two weeks. Many of these lessons in Data Science will help me in my research for years to come. But most importantly, I’ve met so many amazing people from an incredible variety of backgrounds, and that just goes to show how data science is valuable for virtually anyone.”
“It was a great experience to learn from the inspiring teachers about data science. Through this summer school, not only did I see how data was analysed in different disciplines, but also I got to know how the researchers related to my background did their study. During this summer school, I made the acquaintance of friends with different cultural and educational background.”
“I have had a wonderful experience studying Historical Linguistics in Göttingen. In these two weeks I’ve gained new perspectives on linguistics and have had thought provoking discussion with fellow researchers from around the world.”
“I would strongly recommend to be a part of the summer school for data enthusiasts. Also thank all the speakers and the organizers for providing us an opportunity to sharpen all skills in Data Science.”
“This summer school is the most awesome and precious experience for me.”
Virtual Exchange brings students from different universities (and different countries!) to work together virtually on collaborative learning activities. Whatever the discipline, you’ll engage your course subject matter from different perspectives and develop your intercultural skills along the way. In short, virtual exchange gives you the opportunity to take online courses that award academic credit and gain an international, intercultural experience without having to travel abroad! There are courses during the semester or during the break.
For information about discipline specific virtual exchange courses at the University of Göttingen please ask the academic advisors in the faculties.Why should I take a Virtual Exchange course?
