UNIVERSITAET WUERZBURG

 

The University of Wuerzburg offers UT students an excellent opportunity to take a variety of courses alongside local students. UT has had an exchange program with this school since 1978 and has sent more than 400 students to study for the semester, year, and whole summer session. The University of Wuerzburg is ranked among the top universities in the country and offers a diverse learning environment in a charming city in Northern Bavaria.

Students can take regular university courses with students from the host country. There is a semester exchange with a research internship at Infosim and the Faculty of Informatik in the Fall term.

Participants earn regular UT in-residence credit. All grades earned for the courses taken are computed into the official UT Austin GPA, just as they would be for grades earned in courses taken on campus.
