Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg
The roots of the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg reach back as far as 1402 AD. In that era, it was the sixth institution of higher learning to be founded in the German-speaking regions of Europe, after the Universities of Prague, Vienna, Heidelberg, Cologne, and Erfurt. Today, Würzburg's university is counted among the medium-sized institutions of higher learning in Germany. At ten faculties, about 400 professors teach around 22,000 students. The generous grounds of Hubland Campus are situated on a hill at the eastern edge of the city. Newly-designed study programs and the steady influx of students continue to drive the institution's growth. In 2011, the University has started to spread over the Campus Nord, a 39-hectare area which directly borders on Hubland Campus.
The exchange agreement between King's and Würzburg allows for up to 2 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for undergraduate students. This equates to 2 students going for a full academic year OR 4 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
It also allows for up to 3 6-month placements for PGT students.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
