Winter schools serve multiple purposes. These programs offer students the opportunity to meet new cultures, practice different languages, manage themselves far from home in a friendly environment and make friends from different countries.
It is also an excellent opportunity for students thinking to spend longer periods of time in an exchange program or those considering studying a master program or a PhD abroad. These programs enable them to better evaluate different countries, universities and programs.
Of course it is always one of the best ways to rest during the winter holidays.
