Where You Will Study

Founded in 1607, Justus Liebig University ranks as one of the nation’s top universities in the sciences and in cultural studies, and has adopted an ambitious programme for its future development. A great number of outstanding international scholars have contributed to JLU’s potential ever since, and it is to this end that JLU has partnered with the University of Washington physics department to provide students with the opportunity to study in Germany.  Students will take science courses, as well as partipicate in German language classes.


 

Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and IPE administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.

For the total estimated costs of this particular program, you may request a budget by filling out a Budget Request Form.

For more information about budgeting, financial aid, and scholarships for study abroad visit our page on Finances.


 

Application Process

Departmental Exchanges generally focus on a specific academic discipline and often restrict participation to students in that department.  Applications and student selection for Departmental Exchanges are managed by the UW academic department, but students participating in Departmental Exchanges work with the UW Study Abroad Office to complete the same pre-departure requirements as other UW study abroad students.

If you are interested in a Departmental Exchange, contact the department coordinator listed above for information, application instructions and deadlines.  

Most application deadlines occur 6-8 months in advance of an exchange start date, so contact your department early.

See Withdrawal for UW program withdrawal policies.
 

Program Evaluations

After participating in a UW Study Abroad program, students are asked to complete a Program Evaluation Report detailing their experiences abroad and giving advice for future students. These reports cover all aspects of a student's time abroad, including orientation, academics, housing, finances, and cultural differences.
