Become immersed in the culture and traditions of Germany while studying in Bonn! Designed for independent students with previous German language study, this program allows participants to directly enroll in courses at the University of Bonn, one of Germany's leading institutions of higher education.

Situated on the Rhine River, Bonn is regarded as one of Germany's finest cities and an exciting place in which to live and study. The birthplace of Ludwig von Beethoven, Bonn is over 2,000 years old and was the capital of Germany until the fall of the Berlin Wall, when reunification again made Berlin the capital. Today, Bonn has a population of 350,000 and is an international center for science and culture, as well as home to international organizations and companies, including Deutsche Telekom, Deutsche Post, and the United Nations. The famed Ruhrgebiet of Germany, just north of Bonn, is Europe's largest industrial region, boasting such world-famous companies as Braun, Krupps, and Bayer.
