Study Abroad in Berlin and Mainz

Our popular Study Abroad Program, administered in partnership with Middlebury College, is located in Berlin and in Mainz. Please direct any questions about the program to Professor Thomas Nolden.
Our program offers both one- and two-semester options, allowing students of almost any major to pursue their academic interersts. A Resident Director, based in Mainz, leads a detailed orientation, helps students settle into life and register for classes, and regularly meets with students in Berlin. Students enroll in courses at the Freie Universität Berlin, the largest of Berlin’s universities and one of the so-called ‘Elite Universities’ in Germany

Admission

Admission to the program is based on a student’s preparation and the strength of her application. Applications are considered in February for enrollment during the following year, and include a detailed language evaluation as well as a recommendation that can speak to a student’s preparation for the experience at a German-speaking university. In general, applicants must reach a minimum level of the equivalent of four to five semesters of German study in the College curriculum.

Information

The Resident Director, in addition to her regular meetings with participants, will offer a core course for all participants and arrange for regular work with tutors throughout the time spent in Berlin.

Housing is available in student dormitories that offer a variety of rooming options.

Wellesley financial aid may be used to study in Berlin. For students spending the full academic year in Berlin, the program also offers a range of internship opportunities. The resident director works to place students according to their interests and personal expectations. Knafel Stipends are available for internships on a competitive basis.
