We wanted to give you an update on our Berlin Summer Study Visit, which will be running from 3-7 July 2017. Details on the itinerary and accommodation have now been confirmed, and what’s more we have now streamlined our application process.
The study tour will use excursions, museum visits and discussions with Berliners to offer expert insight into both Berlin’s past and its present, enabling participants to profoundly experience this dynamic city whose future will influence the development of the Western world. Itinerary highlights include:
- Walking city tour of 19th century Prussian Berlin
- Lecture delivered inside the 1936 Olympic Stadium looking at the impact of Nazism on Berlin
- Visit to the Holocaust memorial and a study of the fates of the Berlin Jewish community post-1945
- Study of ‘two Berlins’ during the Cold War and how attempts have been made to reconcile these two identities and economic realities since reunification
- Talk and Q&A on the 21st century Berlin migration policy and challenges/opportunities with Berlin City policymakers
- Visit to a local start-up firm to highlight Berlin’s latest incarnation as a centre for the world’s young and creative communities
Students who are interested can now book their place on the study visit using the King’s estore, as opposed to the online application form that was detailed previously. This means it is quicker and easier to reserve a spot on this exciting programme. Registration will now close on 2 June 2017 and we advise early booking in order to secure a place, as spaces are limited. King’s students are able to apply for funding for this programme. Please see the Study Abroad Awards page for more information on how to do so.
If required students can book accommodation ( at an additional cost) at the Circus Hostel. This hostel is conveniently located in the Mitte district, which is a one minute walk from Rosenthaler Platz Metro station. If you would like to book accommodation for the Summer Study Visit to Berlin, please do so via the e-store.
