Program Description:


UGA Exchange, University of Hohenheim

The roots of the University of Hohenheim go back to the year 1818. As a reaction to crop failures and famines, King Wilhelm I of Wuerttemberg founded an agricultural academy for teaching and experiments in Hohenheim which later became the University of Hohenheim.
Based on the founding idea, the University of Hohenheim has since felt obligated to the goal of fighting hunger and promoting high-performing and sustainable agricultural practices.
The current profile of the University is unique due to the combination of its three faculties (Agricultural as well as Natural and Business, Economics and Social Sciences). Today, the University of Hohenheim is an internationally oriented campus University focused on cooperation and research. With this profile, the University pursues interdisciplinary research concentrations in the following areas: Bioeconomy, Global Food Security and Ecosystem Research, and Health Sciences.

Program Reviews:
Spring 2017 Participant
There are many opportunities to be in situations where you can learn about in interact with local culture - just make the effort and its 5 stars!

Spring 2017 Participant
Most/all meals are done on an individual level. I ate very well - Germany's food is pretty cheap and very high quality!

Spring 2017 Participant
I felt very safe on campus and in Stuttgart. Excursions I took abroad with the intensive language course were well organized and executed. On my personal trips, I felt very safe as I traveled with other people and was smart about where and when I went places.

If you are interested in seeing all my tips and tricks for being a study abroad student at Uni Hohenheim, ask Ms. Amanda Stevens for my extensive google drive document. Other than those specific recommendations, I would advise any student considering this program to be open minded. You are in a different country with a different culture and different language and people from all over the world (mostly NOT Americans), so to get the full experience be willing to take it all in and fall in love with it.
