The Dresden German Studies Program, offered fall and spring semesters, provides a superb opportunity to acquire insight into German academic culture, improve language proficiency, and study and live among German and other international students in university dormitories. Students directly enroll for three elective courses at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), one of the oldest and most prestigious technical universities in Germany. During the first weeks of the program (prior to the start of the TUD semester), students enroll in an intensive language and cultural immersion course.
