Term Notes: This program follows the German academic calendar. Students typically arrive in Munich in September for the Pre-semester Program (a four-week orientation program that includes an intensive language course). Winter Semester typically runs from mid-October through February. Summer Semester typically runs from mid-April through mid-July.

  • Students must take at least one “regular” University course taught in German for local university students during the Fall Quarter and two regular courses during the Winter/Spring Quarters.
