Join our Open Week from 15-19 March

Join us online for our Open Week from 15-19 March

Get a feel for the community, the programmes and the services at the Hertie School.

A lot goes into finding the right school, choosing the right programme, applying, receiving your admission offer and finally making the decision to enrol. We know there’s a lot to consider, and we want to give you all the information needed to help you make a sound decision for your future.

Our virtual Open Week is the perfect opportunity to get to know the people who make up the Hertie School community! You can build your own schedule based on the topics you’re interested in, and ask us questions directly in the online sessions.

Open Week events are spread out from 15 to 19 March. Information sessions for individual graduate programmes – the Master of Public Policy, the Master of International Affairs, the Master of Data Science for Public Policy and the Executive Master of Public Administration – will take place twice this week. So if you can’t make it to one session, just join us for the other.
