INU Summer Courses in Hiroshima, Japan

Application now open, application deadline 11 April

Malmö University offers three spots at the International Network of Universities (INU) summer courses in Hiroshima, Japan 1-10 August. The Student Seminar and the Master's Summer School for Global Citizenship and Peace are two unique immersion programmes hosted by Hiroshima University in Japan. The seminar and the master's summer school welcome students from INU member universities around the world and is structured around the August 6 commemoration of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The theme of the 2023 INU summer courses is 'Climate Emergency and Action'.

The 10-day programmes includes lectures, case studies and small group discussions. The programmes also offer field trips to local attractions and cultural learning experiences, and culminates in a United Nations role play where groups of students represent different countries. The two courses follow the same time line programme, the main difference is that the Master's Summer Schools require pre-readings and a 4000-word paper.

The two courses also include attendance of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony on 6 August.
