Target Group: Who can apply?

Students interested in the Post-Bachelor program should have an excellent educational record, high self-organization skills and a dedication to work in science and research. Core subjects for the summer school are mathematical and computational methods with applications in

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Computer Science
  • Image Processing
  • Theoretical Physics & Astronomy
  • Theoretical Chemistry
  • Bio-Informatics & System Biology
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics


The post-bachelor-program runs from January to November. Many students choose July-August or August-September as the visiting period, but different schedules are possible upon negotiation. Only students attending during August can also attend the cultural part, the   Heidelberg international Summer School. 

Individual selection of the visiting period should be discussed with the doctoral student mentor of each participant. Participation in the   Heidelberg international Summer School will be a valuable part of your cultural experience at Heidelberg University and is therefore highly recommended.
