The BCA Marburg program offers two amazing locations in one program. Students start their program in the heart of Vienna before moving to Marburg, Germany for the duration of the semester. In Vienna, you’ll attend Internationales Kulturinstitut (IKI) Wien for eight weeks with students from all over the world focused on improving their German language skills. In Marburg, you’ll enroll at Philipps-Universität, an internationally renowned institution with a variety of course offerings across many departments, including life sciences, Middle East studies, psychology and geography. If you have an advanced level of German, you can take Philipps and BCA courses taught entirely in German. If your German is not as advanced, you can take BCA courses designed for our students and choose from select courses taught in English at the Philipps.

Your BCA Marburg Resident Director will meet you in Vienna to orient you to the city, giving you the confidence you need to quickly connect to the many cultural events and activities available to you. When you arrive in Marburg, your RD will be there to welcome you and show you all the local landmarks and cultural hotspots. Together you will also visit other locations in the area. Excursions outside of the city vary by semester but in the past have included Bratislava, Salzburg or Strasbourg. 

In addition to the local students you meet through your courses and housing, you can join any of the student organizations or clubs at Philipps-Universität to become part of the campus community. You can also volunteer at local social service agencies such as a refugee center, a senior assistance agency or a hospital to become part of the community.
