• Admission Requirements (2 years German, 3.0 GPA, junior standing)
• Cost & Expenses ($14,000 per semester includes tuition, housing & insurance)
• See How we Compare (JYM already costs thousands less than other programs, and our scholarships reduce the cost even more - especially for full-year students)
• More Scholarships! (most of the nearly $70,000 JYM awards in scholarships each year is reserved for full year students; the average of JYM scholarships awarded in 2018-19 was $4,150)
• Academics & Courses (university courses, JYM language and new area studies courses)
• Download a list of university courses JYM students have taken in recent years (PDF)
• Earn a Certificate in Intercultural Communication from LMU Munich (only for full year students)
• Research Projects (Get inspired and make a research plan! See how others have used their year abroad to research a wide range of topics - and many were used successfully after JYM as a foundation for post-graduation fellowships.)
• Internships (many students have used the first semester to focus on strengthening their German language skills as preparation for an internship between semesters or during the second semester - check out the internships they've had!)
• What do Students say? (Students often say afterwards "If I had only known what a year in Munich would be like, I would have gone for the year." Here's your chance to hear what they have to say.)
