The program combines high-quality teaching with a wide range of cultural and social activities.

During the four weeks in Giessen, students will study in a familiar atmosphere and meet excellent lecturers and practitioners from all over the world. Besides, they have the opportunity to attend a German language course offered at different levels.

Students can join our field trips to the magnificent European capitals, Berlin and Brussels, and enjoy the beautiful German landscape on our Rhine Valley trip.
