Program Description:

University of Mannheim

Mannheim, Germany


Eligibility: You must be a sophomore or higher upon arrival to Germany and meet WIU study abroad eligibility requirements. Open to all majors. 

Location: Mannheim is the second largest city in the state of Baden-Württemberg and is situated at the confluence of the Rhine and Neckar Rivers. The University of Mannheim is located in Mannheim’s palace, the largest baroque palace in Germany. The lecture halls are close to the center of the city and only a five minute walk to the banks of the Rhine. About 800 scholars and 11,000 students enjoy the privileges of this unique setting and atmosphere.

Academics: A number of courses are available in English. Courses are taught in English in the following areas: Business Administration, Social Sciences, English and American Studies, Economics, Legal Studies, Humanities, and Computer Science.

Housing: Students are generally housed in residence halls, with private or semi-private options. Cooking facilities are available and students can purchase meals in the student unions, which offer low-cost menus. Depending on the residence hall, students will live with between two and fifteen people in a shared apartment with private bedrooms but the kitchen, bathroom, and toilet are communal. There are single rooms and cheaper double rooms with two beds in one room. Additionally, the International Office offers a very limited number of one bedroom apartments with a small in-room kitchen and private bathroom.
