About the University of Freiburg

The truth will set you free.  

Many famous philosophers, top researchers, and Nobel laureates have taught and researched at the University of Freiburg. Already a comprehensive university at its founding in 1457, the University of Freiburg still offers undergraduate and graduate studies as well as professorial qualification in all important disciplines today: the humanities, natural and engineering sciences, medicine, law, and theology. This diversity also provides an ideal environment for innovative interdisciplinary studies. Students, professors, lecturers, and employees experience that family friendliness, equal opportunity, and environmental protection are more than just empty phrases here. Numerous former students as well as benefactors and sponsors intensify a culture of dynamic exchange with the city, the region, and the international scientific community. All of these groups work to give the University of Freiburg the vitality that will continue to provide fertile ground for outstanding achievements in the future. 

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 Freiburg to continue their studies and enroll in one German course in addition to other coursework.
