Cologne Global Study Program – Contemporary European Studies

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. 



Update - Summer Term Courses

All core courses of the Cologne Global Study Program will be held during the summer term 2020. In close cooperation with the teachers we were able to prepare digital formats. Please check for detailed information on the actual starting date of each class. If there are any open questions, do not hesitate to contact us. 

Courses are open to ALL students (CGSP program students, regular students, Erasmus students, international exchange students) of the UoC, offering a unique intercultural learning atmosphere. 

Starting today, April 3rd, courses are open for registration on Klips.

Every year the University of Cologne is honoring exceptional achievements in the fields of "Research", "Study&Teaching", and "Administration". The Cologne Global Study Program is organised by the department "International Science" of the International Office and therefore part of the administration of the UoC. It has reached university-wide recognition.

Ms. Judith Berns and Dr. Johannes Müller were awarded with the "Universitätspreis" (University Prize) for their outstanding and enduring engagement within the Cologne Global Study Program. Both are pointing out, that realising this unique project would not have been possible without the intensive support of the entire team of the department, the lecturers, and, last but not least, the students participating in this programme.
