Study in Heidelberg

All the information you need about studying in Heidelberg as an international student.

Why study in Heidelberg?

Heidelberg is a traditional university city in southwestern Germany. The city is a bustling hub of science, literature, and art, making it the perfect study abroad destination for curious students.

Located in the River Neckar valley, Heidelberg is most famous for its stunning castle ruins and gothic church tower. If you’re looking for a well-deserved study break, the cobblestoned streets of the Old Town are home to several cafes, bars, restaurants, and independent shops.

Heidelberg’s calendar is packed full of international music festivals, literature days, sporting events, and Christmas markets. For students hoping to see even more of Germany during their time abroad, the major cities of Frankfurt and Stuttgart are just over an hour’s drive away. Both of these cities have international airports, so flying home during the holidays is simple.
