Study Abroad Options


Study in the Mosel Wine Region near Luxemburg
Trier is a city of 105,000 in western Germany on the banks of the Mosel and is the oldest city in the country, founded in or before 16 BC by the Romans.  Trier has been declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Today’s cityscape is a fusion of history and modern lifestyle, not least characterized by a vibrant student life.  

The original University was founded in 1473 before being forced to close in 1798 under Napoleon.  It was then reestablished in 1970 and today is home to around 15,000 students. Trier University embraces contrast: young, yet true to tradition; internationally oriented and regionally rooted; on the geographic edge of Germany, but in the heart of Europe.

Accommodations While Studying Abroad in Trier
We understand that moving into a new country means exciting new challenges, but it also can be stressful and concerning. You may ask: What is my room like? Will I have a roommate? How safe and convenient is the housing? Your concerns and worries are our concerns.
Trier University’s International Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt - AAA) arranges rooms in halls of residence. Germany levies a social contribution, which is not a tuition fee; it is a contribution for the student administration, regulated by statute and has to be payed by all students. Payment entitles students to free use of public transport in Trier as well as trains to Koblenz, Saarbrücken and some more places.
Foreign students have a wide variety of cultural, sporting and leisure activities available to them promoted by the University or student associations. Currently, all students can participate in the following activities: film cycles, theme days, excursions, cultural events, and attendance at sports events, among others.

Study Abroad Options
Undergraduate students can study during the spring semester (called summer in Trier).
Spring:     March – July 
The partnership with Trier University was developed for students to become immersed in the German culture and language.  The courses that students enrolled in (taught in German) at the university will reflect this idea.  Language prerequisites: 4 semesters of college level German (high intermediate proficiency level).

Students will register locally.  The German level of students is determined by previous course work and by testing upon arrival at Trier. Students will not see the final grades on their Webster record until the official transcript arrives from Germany and is entered onto their record.
