UAS7 is a strategic alliance of seven leading German Universities of Applied Sciences committed to excellence in teaching and research.
Since 2006, the Study and Internship Program (SIP) has enabled highly qualified undergraduates from US and Canadian colleges and universities to experience the German approach to hands-on education at a member of UAS7, a consortium of Germany’s top universities of applied sciences. SIP students spend a semester studying at a UAS7 campus and a semester interning. Although most SIP students will apply for internships after arriving in Germany, you can request placement in a UAS7 research laboratory/institute internship in your application.
Applicants must be:
- full-time undergraduate students in good academic standing currently enrolled in a degree program at an accredited US or Canadian college or university (US or Canadian citizenship is not required)
- currently enrolled as sophomores or juniors in a field represented on UAS7 campuses: engineering, science, life sciences, business, management, economics, architecture, art, design, journalism, social work
Successful applicants are eligible for two scholarships. A maximum of one scholarship will be awarded per successful SIP applicant. All SIP applicants will be considered for these scholarships during the admissions process.
