Phillips Universität, Marburg
Discover a new world! Take the opportunity to participate in our exchange program at the Phillips Universität in Marburg. A classic university town where students make up one-third of the population, Marburg offers plenty of cafes, restaurants, and entertainment. Set in a river valley in the middle of Germany, the town offers some of the best-preserved medieval architecture in the country. Many students have fallen in love with Marburg and have gone back after their graduation from Randolph-Macon. More Information.
Our program in Marburg consists of a one or two-month language school, an orientation program and a full year's study. At the university you are allowed to take any course for which you are qualified (except medicine, veterinary science or pharmacology). A number of courses at the Dolmetscher Institut are specifically designed to improve your German to the point that you can participate with German students.
Since it is a direct exchange, your Randolph-Macon tuition provides you with free study at the Phillips Universität (including the language school and the orientation program), a monthly stipend (for room and board), health insurance, free bus or train transportation locally or within a 100 km radius of Marburg, access to the university cafeteria, and accommodations in a single-room in the Studentendorf (village of student residence). Your courses will also transfer directly as Randolph-Macon work. Based on financial need, travel funds may be available from the Dean of the College.
Through our partner ISEP, students may choose to study at a variety of universities in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, such as Technische Universität Braunschweig, Universität Hannover, Universität Bielefeld, Technische Universität Dortmund, Universität Giessen, and Universität Trier in Germany; Universität Linz, Universität Salzburg, and Universität Graz in Austria; and Universität Bern, and Universität Zürich in Switzerland.
In consultation with their German faculty advisor at R-MC, students may choose a university that best suits their needs and interests. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the faculty of the German program.
