Set in a vibrant city rich in art, science, innovation, museums, architecture, and the performing arts,   Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is one of the oldest universities in the world.

This newly-formed academic exchange allows UGA undergraduate and graduate students from a wide-range of majors to study for a semester or a year at LMU, one of Germany’s top academic and research universities. Founded in 1472, LMU Munich approaches scholarship with an interdisciplinary approach to inspire innovation and solve problems. The university credits attracting scholars from 130+ countries for placing LMU “at the nexus of ideas that challenge and change our complex world.”

For UGA students seeking an international exchange, LMU is a natural fit: it offers a variety of courses taught in English for many subjects and disciplines. It hosts around 1,000 students from partner universities each year, and students have many options for exploring the region.

Situated at the center of Munich, the historic capital city of Bavaria and a hub for technology and media, students have access to the nearby Alps and many outdoor experiences, as well museums, festivals, theater, galleries, and its legendary beer gardens.

Semesters in Germany run from October-February and April-July. See program details on the Program Information page and Fact Sheet link.
