Program Description:


UGA Exchange, Universitat 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.

Student Residences

Program Reviews:
Spring 2017 Participant
All the on-campus dorms were safe, and it really depended on who your flatmates were in terms of cleanliness.

Spring 2017 Participant
The classes at Hohenheim were very high quality! The work load, even for master courses, was not as much for me compared to my semesters at UGA (which is also due in part to the differences between the USA and Germany educational systems). I definitely studied, but I also had time to travel and hang out with people and really take advantage of my experience/time in Germany.

Spring 2017 Participant
Most of the useful and accurate orientation materials and information came to me through the University of Hohenheim, not from UGA. The exchange program hadn't been done by a student recently, so not much current detailed information was available in the beginning for me when applying/preparing.

Definitely the people. Spending time with my international student group and German friends were how I really learned about culture, not just in Germany but in so many different countries! Also, the ability to travel in Europe for the first time while being totally immersed as a student and resident was a really great experience/opportunity.
