Every year in August we organize the International Science Camp (ISC) for participants from all over the world. You choose three week-long courses and combine them into an extraordinary experience of science. English is the working language. The appoaches and results are compiled at the end of each course week and presented to fellow students in a lecture.
On weekends and in the evenings we arrange a cultural and social program. Social contacts among students from different cultural backgrounds are as important as experimental work and scientific learning.
Göttingen is known for its university and is located in the southern part of Lower Saxony in the middle of Germany. XLAB is embedded in the science campus of the University of Göttingen.
English is the common language of science and the language used during the camp. The participants need English skills according to B2 proficiency level.
The Science Camp lasts 3 weeks. Courses begin on August 5, 2024 in the morning. Overseas participants should arrive on Saturday, August 3 to allow a day to rest. All other participants should arrive on Sunday, August 4 if possible. The camp ends on Sunday, August 25 after breakfast (departure day).
The course fee of EUR 3,900.00 per person is all-inclusive, except for the travel expenses. Payment is due within three weeks of receiving the invoice. If payment is not made, we reserve the right to award the place to another applicant.
To apply for a scholarship, please contact organizations such as large companies in your area, your school or university, or charitable foundations in your city/country. Unfortunately, we cannot grant scholarships ourselves for legal reasons.
Participants will be accommodated in shared rooms of three or four beds in a youth hostel 30 minutes by bus from XLAB. The youth hostel offers plenty of space to play table tennis, volleyball, boules, basketball or just relax with others.
