Various events are organised during your three-week stay. They include:

Visa Requirements and Registration

The visa application is completely in your hands and it has to be taken care of in your country of residence. It should be done as soon as possible. The three-week-long European Business Summer is not considered a study trip or semester abroad and you may enter Germany simply as a tourist, as long as you do not extend your stay over three months. As we will be visiting Strasbourg in France please make sure that you apply for a Schengen visa to be able to travel within Europe. In case a student should need a visa for Germany, EBS Universität will assist with providing a) the acceptance letter and b) a proof of accommodation. If the embassy requires these documents in the original form, then EBS Universität will charge a fee of 50 euro for courier costs.
