Program Description:
Vienna-Marburg Combined
The Vienna-Marburg Combined Program

AKA The I-Want-It-All Program Option.  This option has everything you need.  Because we know acquiring German skills and adjusting to the European way of life takes time and is challenging, we put together a program that places you in Vienna for two months, followed by one or two semesters at the Uni Marburg.  Apply yourself and your language proficiency will soar, and you will feel comfortable living and studying in Europe. 
Included in the program fee are the German language course fees with our partner language school and weekly activities in Vienna, tuition at the Universität Marburg, optional enrollment in Achievement courses in Marburg, Genuss-ist-ein-Muss get-togethers at the program director’s home (aka a home away from home), student housing for the duration of the program (semester breaks included for full-year students), group travel including train fare and accommodations, both en route from Vienna to Marburg (with overnight stops and activities in Salzburg and Frankfurt) and on the Berlin excursion, orientation, pre-departure and academic advising, grade report, Ucard with library card function.

All students admitted to the program must demonstrate that they have a health insurance policy in place for the duration of their stay in Vienna.  After the pre-semester prep in Vienna, students will be required by the local officials in Germany to purchase a local health insurance policy, and we can gladly connect you with the DAK.

Join us for two consecutive semesters / an academic year and receive a discount on your second semester.

Another important perk:  you can keep your student housing over the Christmas and semester breaks and travel as you please.
