BW2019

Join other higher education international professionals in Konstanz, Germany for the BW Seminar.

October 13 - 19, 2019

Annually, AACRAO and NAFSA choose members working as study abroad officers, international student advisers, admissions officers, registrars, or others with responsibility for postsecondary-level exchanges for this training focused 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.


After receiving nearly 50 applications, the joint AACRAO/NAFSA review committee is pleased to announce on behalf of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research, and Arts the 15 participants for the 2019 Baden-Württemberg (BW) Seminar.
