BW Seminar

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and Arts presents the 2021 Baden-Württemberg Seminar

October 27, 2021 | 11:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M. ET

The Baden-Württemberg Seminar is back this year for a virtual experience. This virtual seminar focuses on the German educational system, German-American academic comparability, and student exchange between Germany and the U.S. The online seminar provides virtual visits to institutions in the state of Baden-Württemberg (BW), and virtual breakout rooms will give participants the opportunity to connect with representatives from the wide variety of institutions in the BW higher education landscape. Seminar attendees will also get updates about plans for the next in-person BW Seminar, planned for 2022.

Application Process

  • Process
