Program Overview

The CSU IP Germany Direct Enrollment program is associated with the State of Baden-Württemberg, which is in southwest Germany and is home to world-renowned universities. The CSU IP program is coordinated by a CSU on-site staff member and the Office of International Relations at the University of Tübingen. Students from every major are encouraged to participate, as a wide variety of educational opportunities are offered.Students peeking out a window 

All students participate in a Preparatory Language Program (PLP) before the fall semester begins.  PLP courses offer instruction in German grammar, reading, writing and conversation and often include cultural excursions.  The location of the PLP is dependent upon the student’s academic year placement. Most PLP programs are 4 weeks in length. After the PLP, students move to their university placement.
CSU IP Germany Direct Enrollment participants have the opportunity to study at universities in the State of Baden- Württemberg.  Students select their top three choices of universities when completing the CSU IP application.  Some universities where recent CSU IP German Direct Enrollment participants have studied are:
