Where You Will Study

LMU is one of the largest liberal arts universities in Europe, and a wide variety of courses are available in many disciplines. Most Economics courses are offered in German. LMU offers interesting courses such as Experimental Economics, Economics of Imperfect Labor Markets, and Culture & Institutions through Economic History taught by some of the most renowned German economists and many visiting from Europe and the U.S. 

Being Germany’s 3rd largest city, Munich is ranked highly as one of the world’s most livable cities, along with economic and social innovation. It is the capital of Bavaria and boasts a fascinating historical background. Located at the foot of the Alps, Munich is one of the most beautiful regions in Germany, and naturally is an attractive city for winter sport enthusiasts.

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.
