Dresden, Germany

Because Dresden was part of East Germany until the country’s reunification in 1990, it’s not automatically included on people’s “Where I want to study abroad” lists. That’s good news for you if you’re looking for an immersive experience in a charming, historic city that’s off the beaten track.

On all our Dresden Programs, students study at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), one of the oldest and most prestigious technical universities in Germany. With a full complement of science and humanities courses, TUD gets high marks from our students for its professors.

Housing is in university dormitories. Students receive room and board stipends, which may be used to buy food at student cafeterias, or students can shop at grocery stores or markets in Dresden and prepare their meals in the dormitory kitchens.

Because of its central location, excursions to the rest of Europe are quite easy.
