Stoyan, Bulgaria (BSU'18 Participant): Interesting and fun like Erasmus+ and in the same time academically oriented and beneficial like high quality academic education in an international atmosphere - this is BSU, the best summer university. We studied, we did projects, we had competitions, games, and tasks, but during all of these we were all together and kept our motivation. I am happy to be part of the BSU family for already two summers and hope to continue this positive life-changing trend!
Thorsten, Germany (BSU'17 Participant): BSU was just what I expected it to be: a great mix of valuable cultural experiences, meeting new people with different backgrounds and interesting input from summer school lectures. All in all, it is a great way to spend two weeks over the summer! You can get to know another country like you never could on your own: together with a group of local students who put in great effort and time. I would definitely recommend BSU. Go see for yourself!
Yllka, Albania (BSU'17 & '16 Participant): BSU is an intensive, joyful and fascinating experience at the same time. There is no better choice than a summer school in a country which has such an intriguing history and kind people.
