The European Study Center was developed through a partnership between UIW and CEPA Europe. The partnership allows UIW to offer students a wide variety of courses taught at the European Study Center, as well as at its local partner school, the SRH University Heidelberg.
All courses are taught in English, and credits are issued by UIW so students can work toward graduation while experiencing German culture.
Subject areas include European business, international relations, and EU Studies, and German language courses are also available. The academic programs during the fall or spring semester are 17 weeks long, and the summer session is four weeks long.
Work completed at the European Study Center will fulfill the requirement for a study abroad experience for International Business and International Relations students.
Internships and service learning opportunities are also available for those seeking to gain hands-on international work experience in a German company or organization.
The European Study Center is housed in a villa centrally located in a residential area of Heidelberg, and features comfortable student rooms, classrooms and seminar space, a computer lab, wi-fi, laundry facilities, and a spacious garden.
