Summer school and student trips
IRTI organizes summer schools biennially. The next summer school is expected to be in the first half of July, 2023, in The Netherlands. If you are interested to participate, please contact the secretary, email@example.com.
Past Summer Schools
The last IRTI Summer School was held from 3 to 8 July, 2018, in Amsterdam on the topic ‘Church and Civil Society.’ The Summer School was hosted by the Protestant Theological University and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and co-organized by:
- New Brunswick Theological Seminary (NBTS), New Brunswick, USA
- Sárospatak Reformed Theological College (SRTA), Sárospatak, Hungary
- Debrecen Reformed Theological University (DRTU), Debrecen, Hungary
- Protestant Theological Institute (PTI), Cluj Napoca, Romania
About 40 students and staff members from Hungary, the Netherlands, Romania and the US participated in the Summer School.
The IRTI summer schools are a continuation of a longstanding tradition of summer schools organized by IRTI partner NBTS every two years in the Netherlands. Due to the pandemic we had to cancel the 2020 Summer school.
Past student trips
In 2014 and 2015 IRTI supported the international study trips of students from the joint bachelor program in theology of the Protestant Theological University (PThU) and Faculty of Religion and Theology of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam to Debrecen (Hungary) and – together with students of the Debrecen Reformed Theological University – to Novi Sad (Serbia) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). These intensive international and ecumenical experiences included student conferences, ‘mini’ internships, visits to churches and social organizations, lectures and several opportunities of informal contact between students from different cultural backgrounds, but with a shared Reformed tradition.
