We encourage our students to participate in summer or semester-long study abroad programs in German speaking-countries. Students interested in Study Abroad should plan early and consult with German faculty as well as the Office of International Studies and Programs (OSIP).
Scholarships for study abroad are available through OSIP. Thanks to generous donations from the Houston Sängerbund and other donors, the German program has been able to award study abroad scholarships in past years and hopes to continue to do so. Scholarships will be posted on our webpage.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers a wide range of programs and scholarships to students from various disciplines.
For in-depth information on studying in Germany, please consult the Deutschland.de link portal
Through the University of Houston/Universität Leipzig Exchange, one student from UH is given the opportunity to attend the Universitat Leipzig(Germany) for the fall or spring semester on a DAAD scholarship.
