What students say...

"TU Dortmund University offered me so many opportunities to grow professionally and enrich my life personally. I spent one semester taking multiple language and culture classes including one specifically on the changing of the Ruhrgebiet into its very own modern metropolis, and focused my second semester on taking classes more applicable to my Economics Major.

Justin Wallace

I experienced the city and its culture from the perspective of a real Dortmunder. From the enormous Christmas tree that lit the glowing markets of winter to the roaring football stadium housing 80,000 roaring fans of the Borussia team to the gorgeous relaxing parks, Dortmund folks know how to have a good time regardless of the occasion." (Justin Wallace, University of Virginia / Study Abroad Academic Year 2009-2010)
