German study abroad programmes

Our German study abroad programme allows you to be immersed in the language and the culture 24 hours a day. It is an entirely different experience than taking a German class at home. In fact, if you have studied German before, you may expect to understand more than you will when you first arrive in Germany. It takes some time to get used to native speakers. Your German studies will be your top priority during your trip, and our very experienced team of teachers will help you reach your language goals. Your time in Germany will also be filled with cultural discovery and personal growth. Aside from all the academic advantages, these experiences are the true gift of our German study abroad programme.

Why study German abroad?

We are counting on you to tell us what you hope to achieve during your German study abroad programme. Do you want to gain academic skills so you can enter a German university? Do you want to focus on your professional communication skills for a career using German? Or do you simply want to learn more about German culture and history? When you've told us your goals, we will advise you during the selecting press and set your expectations accordingly, then guide you throughout your German study abroad programme in order to make sure that you are on track to achieve your objectives in the time you have in Germany.
