Overall Experience
I gained cultural competency and independence. I also increased my ability speaking German which was a main goal of mine for the experience. It was worthwhile! - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review
I have learned to live life more and not to work so much. It is okay to stop and relax occasionally - Frostburg State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with ISEP Direct: Marburg - Study Abroad at Philipps University of Marburg
I learned more German in my first three months of studying in Marburg than my previous seven years studying in the United States. Not only did I learn a large amount of German, I also learned about other cultures such as the German and Spanish cultures. - University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point View Entire Review

About

About this program:
Situated on the river Lahn and surrounded by forests, Marburg welcomes you! This beautiful and rare medieval city is just as famous for its surroundings as its famous alumni, including the Brothers Grimm! Enjoy the safety and security of this beautiful small town while studying in either English or German. ISEP participants can choose from 3 options:
ISEP-Exchange Academic Immersion: Excellent fields include languages, education, history, law, economics, and theology (students should have working German knowledge).
ISEP-Direct International Undergraduate Studies Program (IUSP): No previous German language is required for this intensive German language program available for all levels. Choose additional electives from a selection of regular university courses taught in English. ISEP-Direct program includes excursions to Berlin and other exciting, important historical sites as well as special evening lectures on cultural topics.
ISEP-Direct Summer Program:German language plus subject courses on main topic (currently: Peace and Conflict, the Near and Middle East). No previous German language is required for this intensive German language program available for all levels.
Class descriptions are posted online later than what many colleges and universities outside of Germany are accustomed to. The reason for this lies in the differing academic calendars. The classes for the spring semester in Marburg are published in January; classes for the fall semester in Marburg are published in June. We recommend looking at classes from the previous academic year to get a feel for what classes will be offered in the corresponding semester of the current academic year.
