The program is delivered as blended learning, in a combination of e-learning, face-to-face lectures and projects held in Split, Croatia. Field visits (institutes, museums, field trips) constitute an important part of the program. Laboratory work and biology projects are costly and we are looking for low-cost but sustainable solutions and we appreciate your contributions and good will to ensure the material is preserved for future generations.
The SSKSS starts on July 16th 2018 and lasts until August 26th 2018. The last weekend is taking place on the Island Brac, in Sutivan, where the basics of field work will be introduced.
A one week holiday period is scheduled from July 30 - August 6 2018. During this time the participants may choose between a number of activities. Please note that, however, these activities are not included in the price of the summer semester.
The link below will take you to the application form. Before you start the application process, please take the time to prepare your dossier, so you can easily fill out the form without getting caught off-guard by a question!
Beyond the basics (Your name, birthdate, ...) we want to find out more about who you are, what your intersts are and what motivates and excites you. Take some time to think about previous projects you've worked on exchange semesters you've done and important experiences (academic and otherwise) you've made in your life. Remember, there is no "wrong" way to answer these questions.
Once the application window is closed we will collect all applications and first discard all incomplete dossiers. We will then carefully read all applications and examine the dossiers. While academic achievements are important we will focus our attention also on your ability to communicate clearly and on your motivation to work in interdisciplinary and international environments.
Our aim is to gather 20 highly motivated students from diverse backgrounds from around the globe. If we didn't reach our goal at the end of the first application round we will open a second round to fill the remaining spots. Don't miss your chance though, and apply as soon as you are ready!
