Are you ready to get an experiance for life?

We start courses in August (19 weeks) – the courses are divided into two semesters.

You choose sports subjects and study subjects for each semester. In each semester, you can choose three different sport subjects. It allows you to develop your skills in a particular sport or you can test different sports – it is up to you.

You don’t need to be good at sport – you just have to like sport and to learn new things.
Whether you are a beginner or an elite athlete, we promise you will be challenged.

In each semester you must also choose a study subject – the supply varies from course to course.

As an international student you have to register for the course, no later than April 1st!
