Year of Study in Munich
Sponsor: Lewis & Clark College
Location: Munich, Germany
A unique, full-year program, Year of Study in Munich is a good fit for independent-minded students committed to improving their German and integrating with local students. Students have access to leading research universities in Germany: the Ludwig-Maximilian University (LMU) and the Technical University (TUM), both of which have played a major role in the development of Munich as a significant hub for research, education and high-tech industrial production. Students combine German-taught program courses with a wide variety of regular courses at LMU or TUM in the humanities, science and engineering.
The 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. During the semester break from mid/late February through mid/late April, students can pursue a non-credit internship at a local corporation or a study project while travelling through Europe.
