Program Description:

Karlsruhe, Germany


Program Requirements:

The exchange with Karlsruhe is ideal for students interested in German language and culture while also gaining general education, Business & Economics, Computer Science & Business Information Systems, or Engineering & Sciences credits.  Because of Karlsruhe's academic calendar, MSU students should consider our Spring semester as the time to spend on this exchange unless the student wants to spend the full year there. German language majors and minors will consult closely with their advisors to determine course selections for their study abroad experience. MSU students will enroll in a minimum of 12 credits per semester at the University of Applied Scienes in Karlsruhe for both financial aid and insurance requirements.


Course Opportunities:

There are several programs offered at Karlsruhe that will be interesting to MSU students. For German language courses contact Nadja Kramer. Other programs/classes that are offered in English are Business & Economics, Computer Science & Business Information Systems, and Engineering & Sciences. Contact the International Center for more information about those classes or check out the website here.


Application Process
MSU students interested in this exchange should contact  the International Center.



The academic year is divided into two semesters:
The winter semester begins in early October and ends in mid-February.
The summer semester begins in mid-March and ends in July.

Since teaching usually begins in the middle of October or April respectively, and ends in the middle of February or July it would be best for MSU students to study in Germany during spring semester.

Visa Information--No visa is required to enter Germany with a US Passport but students are required to obtain a residence permit during the first weeks they are on site. See this page for information about residence permits.
