Ludwig Maximilians University Exchange

Students can study Media and Communication, as well as a variety of other subjects at LMU Munich. UC students can receive between 12-18 semester hours and pay University of Cincinnati tuition. The International Office at LMU offers support services to incoming exchange students, helping to assure that exchange students have a successful and beneficial term abroad. LMU is on a semester system, but UC students should note the difference in the start dates for each semester. Munich is located in Southeast Germany in a region called Bavaria. Austria and the surrounding mountains are a short day’s trip from the city, which makes Munich a great location to explore Bavaria and the surrounding region. Munich is a relatively small city and the city metro is one of the best public transport systems in Europe.
