UAS7 Study and Internship Program (SIP)

Since 2006, the Study & Internship Program (SIP) has enabled highly qualified undergraduates from U.S. 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. 


  • Full-time students in good academic standing currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree-granting program at an accredited U.S. or Canadian college or university (college or university must be based in the U.S. or in Canada). U.S. 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.

Period of Study


  • Optional: Affordable pre-program language courses available; details will be provided to successful applicants



  • Orientation activities

  • One semester of study at a UAS7 member University of Applied Sciences



  • One semester professional student internship in a company or research institute in Germany, or at a UAS7 campus laboratory. UAS7 campus laboratory internships may last from 3-6 months; off-campus internships will generally last 5-6 months.

Special Considerations

Competitive applicants will have an outstanding record of academic achievement (minimum U.S. GPA of 3.0 or equivalent), language skills commensurate with their proposed course of study and internship in Germany, strong support from academic and study abroad advisors, and a well-reasoned Study Plan and Statement of Motivation.


Successful applicants for the Study & Internship Program (SIP) are eligible for the UAS7 Travel Scholarship. No additional application forms are required; all SIP applicants will be considered for this scholarship during the admissions process.
