Interested in Contemporary European Studies? Apply for the Cologne Global Study Program!
The Cologne Global Study Program (CGSP) is an academic certification program designed for students of the University of Cologne’s partner universities. It combines classes on Contemporary European Studies (taught in English) and German language courses.
The program’s main goal is to provide an excellent academic environment for exchange students who do not speak German, but wish to study at the University of Cologne. This program strengthens the collaboration between the University of Cologne and its partner universities and fosters an international atmosphere on campus.
Winter Semester 2021/2022
The Cologne Global Study Program will be available digitally during the upcoming winter term. Whether your exhange-stay in Cologne got cancelled or you never planned to do a physical exchange, this is your chance to experience academic exchange after all!
Have a look at our winter term 2021/2022 website for detailed information. We will be glad to assist you with any further inquiries you may have.
Virtual visiting hour (Tue, 13:00 - 14:00h CET): Please register for the virtual visiting hour. Registration.
