Study in Germany

The Baden-Wuerttemberg - Connecticut Exchange (BW-CT Exchange) offers students from participating universities and colleges in Connecticut the opportunity to spend up to one year at one of the top institutions of higher education in the Southern part of Germany. Students can transfer earned academic credit back to their home institution, thereby incorporating their stay abroad into their plan of study at home.
With a population of 11 million people, Baden-Wuerttemberg is the 3rd largest of the 16 German states. It is also home to many companies in the automotive, electronics and biomedical industries, turning the state into one of the most prosperous regions in Germany.
