Program Description:
ISEP Direct Germany
  • With its charming, medieval atmosphere, Marburg is enchanting! Just an hour north of Frankfurt, you can stroll along the idyllic river, stop by a café, and enjoy the views from the hilltop castle. 
  • Deepen your understanding of German language and culture while also learning more about business, sciences, global studies, and humanities from a German perspective. 
  • You will have access to the Marburg buddy system, a program that will connect you to a new friend who will help you navigate daily life and assimilate into the culture of your new home.   
  • On a regular basis, the International Office offers trips and excursions to introduce you to German history, culture, and people. These getaways are offered during the semester and are either completely free or very affordable. 

While you are in Marburg, experience all the city has to offer by renting a rowboat on the Lahn River or attending a Christmas market full of seasonal goodies and souvenirs. Check out the fairy tale pathway, which weaves through Marburg and commemorates the Brothers Grimm, who were heavily inspired and influenced by Marburg’s romantic streets in their many stories. 

What We Love About Marburg 
There are plenty of things to love about studying at Marburg, including the university leisure sports program which offers numerous water sports, as well as martial arts and wellness classes with yoga and shiatsu (and much more). Plus, there is a guesthouse owned by the Marburg University Association which can be used by students for skiing and hiking trips in the Austrian Alps!
