Berlin is a fantastic city to head to for a summer gap year programme – a mix of work, study and exploration. This city has it all – museums and galleries; bars, restaurants and world renowned nightclubs; beautiful green spaces and clear water lakes. It truly is a 24 hour city and the creative zest that it’s famed for still runs through its veins. Berlin has the benefit of being very simple to navigate and many people are speaking English so the students need not be daunted if they’ve never spoken a word of German.
Our summer gap year programme: the writing course
Our travel journalism course in Berlin is a perfect way to get an in depth understanding of one of the world’s most intriguing cities.
The students on our course will spend time with like minded creatives, planning, writing and completing a travel guide to Berlin. The project culminates in the work being published with its own ISBN number. Participants who complete the programme will also leave with our international journalism course certificate.
Both the published work and the certificate are fantastic for CVs and writing portfolios. We’ll also be able to offer references to any future employers.
Our summer gap year programme: the street art classes
We have recently added street art classes to our summer programme. Our courses take place in the formerly abandoned building now known as ‘Apartment A‘. Our students will have the opportunity to learn about street art and create their own unique piece of work, under the guidance of celebrated Italian artist Ale Senso.
The rest of the programme
The project comes together to provide a life changing experience through collaborative teamwork studying abroad, cultural and artistic development and meeting creative internationals.
Our courses run on a monthly basis, in the summer of 2020 we are open in June July, August and September
