Course Overview

Students are encouraged to take a total of five courses during the semester and two courses per summer session.

All courses are taught in English and credits are issued by the University of the Incarnate Word so that students can efficiently work towards graduation while experiencing student life in Germany. Each course is three U.S. semester credits, unless otherwise specified.

UIW-Heidelberg semester students are encouraged to also take at least one course at SRH University, UIW’s partner university in Germany. The offered courses are taught in English and are attended by SRH international students. Courses at SRH University are concentrated into shorter four or five-week blocks, and students take one SRH course per semester.

Additionally, students may take Intensive German Language Courses at all levels at the ih Heidelberg / Collegium Palatinum. Intensive Courses are held for 20 or 25 hours per week; students are advised to obtain pre-approval from academic advisors for evaluation of transfer credit.
