Exchange Program - Germany
Frankfurt is home to 650,000 inhabitants (almost a third of whom are non-Germans) and many important economic and cultural sites. The city has 37 museums, 33 theaters and more than 50 cinemas, as well as other attractions. There are bars, cafes and restaurants scattered throughout the city.
In 1998, Frankfurt became home to the European Central Bank which controls the Euro monetary system. It is also the center for international transportation; it has the largest continental European airport and one of the busiest railway stations in Europe, allowing travel to almost anywhere.
Goethe University is located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It has 36,000 students enrolled, of whom 4,400 are non-Germans coming from more than 90 different countries. The University has 13 main departments/schools from which students will find a large variety of courses. However, the course of studies is more geared toward students from the College of Arts and Sciences.
Students may live in the dormitories, but space is limited. If living in the dormitories is not an option, a counselor will do their best to find private accommodations for you.
All types of courses, taught in German, are available in this program. However, due to the German educational system, courses are not available until the student has arrived in Frankfurt.
Students will be charged the SLU full-time tuition rate. While the Study Abroad office will help you with the setup of your room and board logistics, these are paid directly by the student. All SLU financial aid and academic tuition scholarships will apply (athletic scholarships do not apply). In addition, a mandatory $250 international insurance fee per semester will be added to the student's account.
To seek admission, which is not guaranteed, a student must meet the following requirement(s):
- Sophomore, Junior or Graduate Student
- Competitive GPA
- Proficient in German
- Not be on academic or disciplinary probation
