Study Abroad Fee 

For more information on the cost of this program please visit the Hessen university exchange page here and check their FAQ. 

NOTE: This is a Reciprocal Exchange Program. This means that for semester programs room and board will be paid to the host institution but tuition, fees, and other expenses will be paid to UML. For summer or winter programs all fees will be paid to the host institution and not to UML. 

The Campus

Increase your knowledge about Germany and your proficiency in German while studying either in a bustling city like Frankfurt, in a medieval setting like Marburg, or in the Baroque town of Fulda - just to mention a few.

Exploring Germany

You can choose from as many as 14 different campuses with an almost limitless choice of academic programs. Hessen's central location makes it ideal for trips to other German regions or European countries.
