There are a variety of workshops and project visits related to the Summer School theme over the ten days and you get the opportunity to link practice and theory in a more diverse way, and with people from all over Europe.
The Europe Institute for Social Work at Alice Salomon University of Applied Science, in Berlin, hosts this 10 day event each year, usually in July. Each year a particular topic relevant to Social Work across Europe is identified as the theme for the Summer School. Students are required to prepare a presentation on this topic in their home country and present it at the Summer School.
