Hang out with us online!

Want to learn about the Hertie School while practising social distancing? Join us online for our virtual events.

About a month has passed since the Hertie School first switched to online learning and remote work due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Here in the admissions office, we’ve had to confront a variety of changes, moving our events for prospective students online.

The current situation has made the smaller joys of human interaction in our day-to-day lives very apparent – we miss simply being on campus together with our students, professors and colleagues, or meeting in a café for a coffee chat. But we’ve also seen the power that online platforms have in bringing people together when we can’t physically be together.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve already connected with many of you virtually in our webinars, coffee chats and admissions office hours for prospective students. You’ve met the Dean of Graduate Programmes Christine Reh, current students from both the MPP and MIA programmes, and members of the admissions team. Your engagement and your thoughtful questions have really impressed and energised us.

It’s the people – the students, professors, alumni and staff – who make the Hertie School what it is, so we’re excited to keep meeting and connecting with you virtually in the coming weeks to show you what we’re all about. See you online!

Would you like to join us for a webinar, coffee chat or admissions office hours?

We have many online events lined up next week: Our career development webinar is on 22 April, our coffee chat with Professor of Ethics and Technology Joanna Bryson is on 23 April, and another webinar with MIA Professor of International and Cyber Security Anita Gohdes is on 24 April.
