Program Description:
Germany, ISU Franfurt

The University of Wisconsin System and the universities in the German state of Hessen are partnered in a unique, state-to-state exchange program. Through this program, UW-Eau Claire students may attend one of four International Summer Universities (ISUs). The ISU is jointly hosted by Goethe University and the University of Applied Sciences, Frankfurt am Main.

Frankfurt is a large, multicultural city that offers many opportunities for students to explore and connect with German culture. Since the Middle Ages, the former free city of Frankfurt on the Main River, where Europe's trading routes crossed and the German emperors were crowned, has developed into one of the most important European financial and trading centres.

Today, 368 banks, including the European Central Bank and about 230 foreign banks, and the world's fourth largest stock exchange channel the flow of money here. Everyday life here is international and multilingual, given that almost every third person in Frankfurt holds a non-German passport! The Frankfurt Fair, the oldest in the world, is also a global actor: be it the Book Fair, Music Fair or Car Show, fairs attract almost 2.7 million visitors to Frankfurt in peak years. You will find the flair of a manageable mini-metropolis in the heart of Europe.
