Language Notes
The languages of instruction are German and English.  Exchange students have access to most English-taught classes in the Business Administration, International Business Management programs, and General Studies.  They also have access to several classes from these programs taught in German.  Applicants must have completed the Intermediate level of German (or equivalent) in order to enroll in subjects taught in German.

Program Dates
Fall semester is called Winter and the Spring semester is called Summer.  Due to overlapping academic calendars, students can only apply for the Spring/Summer semester or the full academic year (Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer). All students must stay in Germany to complete all final exams. Early departure from Germany will result in an "Incomplete" on your transcript, or failing grade for finals not completed in-country.

Semester 1: Early October to late February
Semester 2: Early April to late July


Hints for Researching Program and Available Courses
See the BSEL Module Catalogue webpage for a course catalog of classes available to exchange students taught in English and German.

Housing and Meals
The BSEL does not have its own on-campus accommodation and therefore is not in a position to guarantee rooms to exchange students. However, there are several possibilities for exchange students to find accommodation during their stay in Berlin.

See the BSEL Accommodation webpage for visiting students for more information.
Other general information is available on the BSEL Exchange Students webpages.

Insurance Requirement
All SDSU students will be automatically enrolled in the appropriate international health insurance for their study abroad term. The insurance charge will appear on your student account services billing shortly before departure. Students will receive more detailed instructions regarding insurance before departure.
