University of Wuppertal Exchange

Students can study Industrial Design or German language from a semsester to an academic year at the University of Wuppertal. UC students can receive between 15-18 semester hours and pay University of Cincinnati tuition. Wuppertal is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia in the northwestern part of Germany, a short ride on public transport from Dusseldorf. The public transportation system in Germany is some of the best in Europe, which makes it easy for visitors to explore the surrounding regions; however, it is not necessary to leave Wuppertal in order to see and enjoy Germany. The city has developed a student infrastructure that offers everything a student needs to live, from low-priced shops to nightclubs.
