Within the framework of the co-op study program, various subject-specific measures are supported.
Most notably the departments offer classes which help international students with the integration into their study subject and subject specific language.
In particular, projects of the department of political sciences, the computer science department, the university department 06 (translation, language and cultural studies in Germersheim) and of the German philology department, have been sponsored
Project suggestions are always welcome!
