INCiTE summer programme

The world is changing. The workplace is evolving. The way we find solutions must also be transformed. Prepare to think outside the box with the INCiTE Summer School!

What can you expect from the programme?

This three-week intensive virtual Summer School will bring students from top universities together (the University of Edinburgh, University of Amsterdam, Nanyang Technological University, Jiangsu Education Services China and the University of Sydney) in transnational, interdisciplinary teams to provide an accelerated course in Entrepreneurship and Intercultural Competence. Together, you will build an innovative business solution for an urgent global challenge.
This project will create a unique opportunity for students to observe different methods of teaching, learning and problem-solving that span three continents, create international networks and be taught by world class academics, and demonstrate in-demand skills for your CV.

Corona update: The INCiTE summer programme will run as a virtual exchange programme with the experience of Chinese culture and Chinese business incorporated. Prepare to travel the world, from the comfort and safety of your own home.

“One benefit of this programme is that I had the ability to bring what I’ve learned in my studies to the table and integrate it into the dynamic environment of working in a multicultural and interdisciplinary team and actually delivering a product. Satisfying and challenging!” -- Raphael von Aulock, 2019 INCiTE alumnus

For you?

All current UvA students are eligible. You are welcome to apply, as long as you have an active enrollment with UvA during the entire programme. This programme is especially suitable for students who can't go abroad for an extended period due to caring responsibilities or other reasons, and for students with financial needs (see 'What are the costs' below).

When and where?

The INCiTE summer school runs from 12 July 2021 – 30 July 2021. You can also expect some preparatory events to help you make the best of your experience. Due to continued travel restrictions and our care for your safety, INCiTE 2021 will run as a virtual program with lots of space for team work and interactive learning.

How much time is required?

The summer school is a full-time experience with some time off during evenings and weekends. You'll be asked to complete introductory exercises, as well as attend preparatory events and a reflective event afterwards.

What are the costs? And is a scholarship possible?

There are no costs for the virtual course.

Is this a credit-bearing programme?

No, this programme is non-credit bearing. You will get the chance to experience working in an international environment and developing in-demand skills for your CV.
