Every year, a group of AACRAO and/or NAFSA members working as study abroad officers, international student advisers, admissions officers, registrars, or others with responsibility for postsecondary-level exchanges attend a seminar on German-American educational exchange in the German state of Baden-Württemberg (BW). The BW Seminar focuses on the German educational system, German-American academic equivalencies, and student exchange between Germany and the U.S.. Those in attendance also visit secondary and tertiary educational institutions in the state of Baden-Württemberg. Learn more about the application process below.
