Who Can Apply?

In order to participate you need to be enrolled in a higher education course* [However, they also accept students who have graduated recently. Please, explain your situation in your letter of motivation]. The school is intended for students who have had at least 3 years of higher education in a discipline related to the built environment/urban development.

A planning, architectural or design background is indicated, but not necessary. The Summer School welcomes architects, urban planners, engineers, designers, geographers, historians, sociologists, engineers, environmental engineers, and students of other areas concerned with the built environment. However, you must be willing to understand URBANISM.

They are looking for ENGAGED, enthusiastic, entrepreneurial, open minded progressive students from all over the world who can help bring back ideas to their communities.


There is only a limited number of places (100). Students are chosen according to their background, a motivation letter and a very short movie in which candidates introduce themselves. They may not evaluate your portfolio or extensive CV.


Therefore, it is really important that you explain why you want to participate in this summer school and how it can help your PERSONAL, ACADEMIC and PROFESSIONAL development in the motivation letter.

You can tell them what makes you special by letting them know what are your passions, interests, hobbies and extra-curricular activities. Why are you different? Are you an activist? What are your aspirations? Do you make your opinions known by writing and publishing or by any other means of expression? Maybe you have a BLOG?

You need to make your point in 800 words and in a 3-minute film.


The language of the Summer School is English; hence you need to be able to communicate well in that language. You need to mention what your level of proficiency in English is in the motivation letter. This is important because the vocabulary used at the Summer School is rather sophisticated. Hence, you will not enjoy it if you don’t speak English well.
