AT A GLANCE/LOCATION
Regensburg University is located on a modern campus in the midst of the historic city of Regensberg. With approximately 18,500 students, it is a relatively large university. Each year, Regensburg hosts around 1,400 exchange students. Regensburg University prides itself on research and teaching in addition to creating an environment that supports the equality of women and men.
The city of Regensburg is located in Bavaria, Germany. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is the “only authentically preserved large medieval city in Germany.” Regensberg is located less than 2 hours away from Munich, so this city is perfectly situated. You can enjoy gourmet coffee and German sausage topped with Wurstkuchl mustard on beautiful cobblestone streets. The city was rooted and founded in Roman times, but is also now a modern high-tech industry location. Traditional old trades like hatmakers and tower clockmakers are at home here, just the same as the Infineon chip factory, Toshiba's laptop production, or BMW's flourishing car factory.
Mid October – Mid February
Mid April – Mid July
AREAS OF STUDY
While Regensburg offers a wide-variety of areas of study, this exchange was primarily established for German language acquisition. Belmont students may be interested in studying any of the following areas: German language and culture, American Studies, British Studies, English Linguistics, biology, European American Studies, political science, education, psychology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics/computational science. If students are interested in studying at Regensburg, students should consult with Belmont professor, Dr. Regine Schwarzmeier, before selecting their courses of study at Regensburg.
Students with German knowledge of B2 or higher can choose courses from both the German and the English-taught course program during the semester. Students with no German knowledge or German knowledge between A1 and B2 at the time of arrival are urgently advised to take part in the pre-semester intensive language course (ILC) that takes place in September/October and March/April. Students will most likely take courses in the English-taught program and/or further classes in German as a Foreign Language.
Regensburg University offers students housing in a student residence hall through Studentenwerk, a company that manages university student housing throughout the country. All rooms are provided with standard furnishings, and rooms are located throughout the city. Students share a kitchen and bathroom with other students. Housing is usually between 180-240 euros per month.
Students pay housing directly to the Regensburg University and Studentenwerk.
2. Belmont Tuition
Tuition is charged at the regular semester rate. Students pay tuition to Belmont.
Students are responsible for booking their own international travel. Students should wait until they receive formal acceptance from Regensburg into their program before booking their airfare.
The International Office at Regensburg University offers a multitude of cultural and social activities to help students adjust to life in Germany. Their program, Get Together
, promotes exchange between foreign and German students. They plan excursions throughout Germany, host dinners, and have a weekly coffee hour.
