The Baden-Wuerttemberg/North Carolina Exchange Program arranges student exchanges between North Carolina (USA) and the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. Each year about 42 students from each state are nominated to study abroad in order to gain academic and life experience.
The Baden-Wuerttemberg/North Carolina Exchange Program has existed since 1996. The University of Mannheim coordinates things on the German side, including nominating German students to study abroad in North Carolina. The University of Mannheim also places students from North Carolina in their respective universities in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Likewise, our colleagues in Greensboro, coordinate things on the American side. The exchange program comprises 15 universities in North Carolina and 9 universities in Baden-Wuerttemberg, offering students an incredibly rich academic experience. Each university in Baden-Wuerttemberg and North Carolina possesses its own unique profile, special identity, and historical background.

Planning a study abroad in Baden-Wuerttemberg through the State-To-State Program involves many steps and a good deal of planning. Compared to German students, the students from North Carolina are nominated twice a year to go abroad. Consequently, the selection process happens twice a year, once in the fall semester and once in the spring semester.
