Regensburg, a Bavarian city on the Danube River in southeast Germany, is known for its well-preserved medieval core.


Centre’s German-immersion program is run by the Kentucky Institute for International Studies and held at the University of Regensburg. The program lasts nearly five months and is fully integrated into the University of Regensburg’s academic and social life. Students arrive on campus a month before regular classes begin in order to immerse themselves, on a quiet and relatively unpopulated campus, in one of several intensive four-week language courses. The appropriate course for each student will be determined through a placement test administered in the first days of the program. Thus, students begin their stay by focusing on language acquisition at an appropriate level in a comfortable setting and with close contacts to university instructors and other international students. This intensive language course also helps students advance their language skills rapidly, with the result that they should feel quite at home in Regensburg and in Germany in a short time.

The cost is the same as studying in Danville, with the exception of a $375 non-refundable deposit/surcharge and airfare. This amount includes a $15 carbon mitigation fee, but does not include the $20 cost of the required travel medicine presentation that all Centre students going abroad must attend. Regensburg students won’t pay their usual “board” fee to Centre for the semester they’re in Regensburg and instead use this money to cover their food costs in Germany.

In Regensburg, a city of 200,000, students live in university housing.
