Program Description:
Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) Munich - January School
The Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) January School analyses Europe’s role as an international political and economic actor and its relations to different countries and regions of the world.  The German course is complementary to the European Studies Summer Academy.  The program takes place in two European cities, Munich in Germany and Brussels in Belgium and aims to provide students with a broad understanding of the historical development, the economic, societal, political and philosophical dimensions of the European integration project.  The program syllabus is available here.

Monday 22 January, 2018 - Wednesday 14 February, 2018.*  Please see the full program itinerary.
*Students must arrive by Sunday 21 January, 2018 in Munich and can depart on Thursday 15 February, 2018 from Brussels.  

How much does it cost?**
A$2,636 (€1,800) European Studies + German Class (includes academic and extra curricular program and transfers) as outlined on the Payment Information wepage.  A A$586 (€400) discount is available for students from partner universities such the University of Melbourne.

Accommodation costs are as follows:

How much credit can be earned?
The whole program (European Studies + Language subject) is worth a total of eight ECTS which means that students can earn 12.5 University of Melbourne points from their study in this program at its completion.  You must, however, get your overseas study plan approved for credit to your degree here before leaving Melbourne, and students are encouraged to have multiple subjects approved (if possible) to provide themselves with maximum flexibility. 

Accommodation in both cities is included as part of the package (costs outlined above).  Further information on the various types of accommodation and inclusions is available here.

It is your responsibility to ensure you meet any eligiblity conditions set out by the host institution; this will include any academic requirement, language proficiency test, or previous study.  

You must be nominated by the Global Mobility office to participate in the program after ensuring you meet the standard short-term overseas study eligibility criteria.
