Centrally located in Western Europe, the UIW European Study Center is the ideal place for students to study abroad. By gaining an in-depth understanding of the European Union and exploring Europe in their free time, students will benefit from everything this program has to offer.
All courses are taught in English, either at the European Study Center or our local partner University, the SHR Heidelberg.
Heidelberg is home to Germany's oldest university and local culture continues to be defined by its status as a university town. Numerous excursions are included in this program and scholarships are available!

Cultural activities have been included as an integral element of this program that are designed to supplement classroom learning. Additionally, cultural activities included in this program are chosen in order to provide the best possible learning experience for students. Opportunities such as a visit to the Heidelberg Castle, a guided tour of the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart, a day trip to Strasbourg and a weekend excursion to Berlin are all part of the program to help students make the most of their time while abroad.
From their location in Heidelberg, students have access to other European cities, making exploration and travel very convenient and affordable. Heidelberg is only four hours from Amsterdam and Paris, three hours from Zurich and six hours from Prague. Reasonably priced airfare can also be found for students who would like to extend their reach beyond Germany's boarding countries and explore other parts of Europe that are a bit farther away.
