Gain 15 university credits over the course of the fall or spring semester by studying at the European Study Center and taking courses all taught in English.

Highlights

Cultural activities have been included as an integral element of this program that are designed to supplement classroom learning. 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.
