CSU IP's programs in Germany are administered by full-time local CSU staff. The program begins with an intensive six-week Intensive Language Program (ILP) in Horb, a small town near Tübingen. The ILP is a German language and culture course focusing on grammar, composition, and conversation, as well as an introduction to German culture. Students then move to Trossingen to continue their studies and enroll in one German course in addition to other coursework.

Please note that Trossingen’s application deadline is earlier than other CSU IP partner universities; the deadline to apply for this program is January 15th.
