Testimonials

Madeleine Watts, HAUS Summer School Scholarships Recipient 2019

I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to study German in the Internationale Ferienkurs at Universität Heidelberg. Learning German in Germany related what I learned in our daily classes to the world around me. I met so many amazing people from all over the world, all connected by a passion for learning German. I will always be grateful to HAUS for allowing me to have this amazing study abroad experience.

Shira Abramovich, HAUS Summer School Scholarship recipient 2019

The Heidelberg International Ferienkurs was a fantastic experience for me. Not only did I radically improve my German by living in the language, I also got to meet amazing people from all over the world – including the other HAUS scholars in the Sprachkurs, who have become dear friends. My time in Heidelberg was unforgettable, marked by beautiful views, shared meals at the Mensa and Heidelberg’s many restaurants, and conversations on the 31 bus. I am so thankful that the HAUS Summer School Scholarship allowed me to experience this wonderful month!
