Trent University Becomes a Member Institution in a German Exchange Program

Students can study in Germany for the cost of regular tuition

The Trent International Program (TIP) is very happy to announce that Trent University has been accepted as a member institution in the Ontario-Baden Württemberg (OBW) Student Exchange Program. This will give Trent students access to exchanges at nine of the top universities in Germany. Moreover, the cost of the exchange will be lower for Trent students than previously possible - students will pay only the cost of domestic tuition and fees at Trent. Trent students will still be eligible for additional Ontario International Education Opportunity Scholarships (OIEOS).

The OBW program gives Trent students the opportunity to study in a broad range of fields in variable time periods. A student might spend the month of August studying German language and culture along the shores of Lake Constance, or a semester or year at the University of Heidelberg, Mannheim, Stuttgart, Freiburg, or Konstanz. Many fields of study are available in subjects from business to biology, physics to plant production and more.
