This exchange program offers the opportunity for upper level undergraduate and graduate students to take academic coursework in English at Hohenheim University within the fields of Agricultural Sciences in the Tropics and Sub-tropics, Environmental Food Protection and Food Production, Agricultural Economics, and Organic Food Chain Management.
Hohenheim University has a unique campus environment built around a 200 year old Castle. 5,200 students are currently enrolled in the research intensive and internationally focused University.
Hohenheim has this to say about its historical roots: The origins of the University go back to the year 1818. King William I of Württemberg founded an agricultural institution for teaching, experimentation and demonstration. The number of students rose to over a hundred in the middle of the 19th century and, for the first time, to over 1,000 in the winter semester of 1922/23. A remarkably high quota of around one third foreign students throughout the 19th century helped to establish the early international reputation of Hohenheim. In 1847 the institution was raised to the rank of an "Academy of Agriculture and Forestry" and in 1904 the name was changed to "Agricultural College". New fields of study and research in the natural sciences as well as in economics and the social sciences developed in accordance with its original agronomical orientation. In 1967 the college received the designation "University of Hohenheim".
*Graduate students participating in this program have the opportunity to earn credits for their Plans of Study if they are approved by their major professor and advisory committee.
ThWe might have a University of Hohenheim/Baden-Württemberg scholarship, consisting of an approximate $500 per month stipend (4-10 months), is available to a qualified Purdue student accepted into the program. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is in March of the previous academic year.
