A great summer experience where I had the chance to meet people from all over the world. It was also awesome to see Prague and the different views and attractions of the city.

Leadership Skills

2018

Have you always wanted to study abroad, but couldn't find the time nor resources for it? Then I think ESS is the perfect solution! In this two week program, I learned so much about myself, life, and Praha. Due to the well-structured program and communication with the activity leaders, you will have the feeling that you are on a holiday with friends whilst also being educated in things you are actually interested in. It was especially nice that you could take some time for yourself if you feel like it, although there is the possibility to participate the everyday activities. This overall experience has gotten a special place in my heart and I surely would recommend everyone (no matter what age or background) to attend such a summer course. Embrace life, educate yourself, and have an open mind!

Design Thinking Bootcamp

2018

I came to the design thinking course to learn and get an overview of this approach, it helped me a lot to figure out the design process. Now i feel more confident with the methodology. The materials shared were really valuable and the course was taught in the best possible way. I really enjoyed it and I higly appreciated the activities that ESS was proposing everyday. You can discover and enjoy the city, you'll live in an international context and you'll make for sure new good friends. At the end of the courses there's a cerimony where everyone can shows the output and also get a certificate. I was in team with a Portugeuse engineer and a Japanese master student, we worked on a project for a pharmacy of Prague. I'm happy to remember the time we spent on it and all the great moments I shared with the participants of the summer school. Thank you ESS! It was definitely an amazing experience.

Mobile Developing Concepts

2015

Being a teacher at this summer school was a meaningful, relevant, and very good experience for me, and it pushed me to think “outside of the box”. What really impressed me the most was that the students showed a high level of ownership in the activities in class and the exercises given that I do not see every day. The organizers of the summer school handled everything in a professional manner and made the whole experience even more enjoyable. I will recommend this summer school to everyone who wants to work on their knowledge and skills.

ESS brings together people not afraid of engaging in something completely different from what they’re used to doing back home. It’s a great way to meet and interact with young people representing different cultures and as such – a definite opportunity to spend quite possibly the best couple of weeks in your life if you’re curious, enthusiastic and open to new experiences. Also, Prague is absolutely amazing!

Design Thinking Bootcamp

2015

Besides massive new illustration skills, I learned how much you can achieve in only two weeks. I met likeminded people who are open minded and fun to hang out with.The summer school helped me to develop professionally, but most of all it gave me more self esteem in this field of work.
