There are two options available for this program: 4 weeks (4 credits) and 8 weeks (8 credits). Students select their program length at the time of application, and it's not possible to make any changes after the application deadline. All students participate in the first four weeks of the program together before students in the four-week program depart Leipzig. Students in the eight-week program have a weeklong session break at the conclusion of the four-week program and then return to Leipzig to complete the remaining four weeks of their academic program.
New for summer 2022, students will take the German Language Placement Exam online and prior to the first day of class. Accepted students will receive information about this process prior to departure.
Do not use the above dates to book your flight, as they are tentative and subject to change. Accepted students must wait to receive confirmed program dates and flight booking guidelines from Education Abroad before making travel plans.
Program participants are required to be present for the entire length of the program, from the official arrival date through the program end date.
*Many students find it necessary to spend the night in Berlin prior to departure, which they schedule for the following day anyway to ensure that they have enough time to catch their flight, since many flights out of Berlin to the US are early in the morning.
