Intensive Study Program (ISP)

The Intensive Study Program at DHBW Villingen-Schwenningen is a one or two-week academic event organized for students from partner institutions (groups of 15 to 25 students). The program combines different forms of learning such as lectures, roundtable discussions, group-work, and presentations and is complemented by a varied cultural program. Students visit local enterprises for insights on working in Germany. They are awarded a certificate at the end of the program. International lecturers add to the open and diverse atmosphere; courses can be chosen individually by the visiting universities.


Students stay at a nearby youth hostel with moderated prices. They have access to all university facilities, such as the cafeteria and the library.


Students cover their travel expenses to and from Villingen-Schwenningen as well as their living expenses. A fee of approximately €100 covers admission fees and local transportation.
