Study Abroad / Auslandsstudium

Study Abroad 

Our program offers both one- and two-semester options, allowing students of almost any major to pursue their academic interersts. A Resident Director helps students settle into life and register for classes, and regularly meets with students. 

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.

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

Wellesley financial aid may be used to study abroad.
