To maintain its top position and to attract international students and researchers, LMU Munich follows a multi-dimensional internationalization strategy that ranges from international research cooperation to classic student exchanges with partner universities worldwide, and short-term study programs for international students.

Short-term study programs, in-person or online, such as the EU Studies winter and summer schools offer international students the following benefits:

  • cost-effective option for students to study abroad and to add international experience to their CV
  • personal development
  • intercultural experience

Short-term study programs are the ideal option for students

  • whose study schedule does not allow an extended period of time abroad
  • who would like to gain international experience without being away from home for too long
