Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München International Summer University (MISU)

About the Program

Programs are available for undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduate students may participate in the following programs:

  • European Studies: "Participants gain a broad insight into the historical development and the economic, social, political, and philosophical dimensions of the European integration process as well as into Europe's role as an international political and economic agent." Students have the option to do an intensive version of the course, or a regular version plus a non-credit German language class.
  • Middle East Studies: "Participants gain a broad understanding of the key political, economic, and societal developments in the contemporary Middle East." The program is for "students that have an interest in foreign policy, economic and societal developments. In-depth knowledge of Middle Eastern affairs is not required."

Please indicate which program track you intend to take at LMU MISU in the Statement of Intention section of your Go Global application. If you wish to participate in a different program offered by MISU, please contact Go Global.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Tuition and Fees

There are a limited number of exchange spaces available for the European Studies program track only, which will be assessed on a competitive basis. Under exchange, students pay UBC tuition for the number of credits they enroll in for this program.  If not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution at a special discounted rate for UBC students.

For the Middle East Studies program, you will pay tuition directly to the partner institution for this program. 

The partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.

How to apply to a Go Global Summer Program

  1. Ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements, including any partner or program-specific requirements. 
  2. Apply online by the Go Global deadline listed above. Please submit only one application for the summer program of your choice (you can include a second choice as a backup on the same application if needed by selecting the "Add Item" button). If you plan to do multiple experiences (e.g. more than one summer program; a term exchange and a summer program, etc.), please submit a separate application for each experience. Our team will review your application and if successful, will nominate you to apply to the partner institution. 
  3. Pay the Go Global Fee when prompted after the application deadline.
  4. If successfully nominated by Go Global, you will receive instructions on how to apply to the partner university. This application typically includes the supporting documents listed below:
    1. Recommendation letter from a UBC professor in a field similar to the summer opportunity
    2. UBC Transcript (Go Global will provide you with a copy of your UBC transcript)
