HOW IT WORKS
  1. Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor
  2. Meet with your academic advisor to discuss courses
  3. Complete the study abroad application process*
  4. Pay UWL resident tuition
  5. Pay housing and meals at the host institution abroad
  6. Spend your semester or academic year in Germany!
*Students MUST first start the UWL study abroad application
process. Students can ONLY start an application at a school
in the state of Hessen once they have been placed. 
VISA INFORMATION
Exchange students going to Germany will NOT need to apply for
a visa before departure, but upon arrival in Germany. Once in Germany, students
need to apply for a Residence Permit. 

UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a TIME SENSITIVE
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost. Get more information
about traveling to Germany, including information about visa/residence permit,
@ Travel.State.Gov-Germany or @ Frankfurt University Before Arrival webpage. 
 
ELIGIBILITY

Students who are interested in studying abroad, but do not meet eligibility
