Language of Instruction: English & German

Semester Course Load: 30 ECTS

The EBS course timetable is not as regular as Purdue’s academic calendar. Some courses last for a whole semester, some for several weeks, and other shorter courses last merely for a few sessions. The student is responsible for checking for timetable clashes during registration.

Most of the courses have a number of sections, with at least one of these sections taught in English (unless otherwise specified).

Additionally, you can enroll in a free intensive German language course before the semester begins.



Excursions organized by students have included: travelling back in time to the 12th century or feeling the pulse of modern in nearby Frankfurt.

The EBS Housing Office assists international students in finding affordable, furnished and convenient accommodation near campus. Since Housing is not an automatic part of your Study Agreement, finding a place to stay can be challenging. The Housing Office helps to overcome the language barrier. Nearly all our students rent in the surrounding towns and villages, renting private apartments or sharing flats.
