Germany is a breathtakingly beautiful country with a unique and rich history and a diverse modern culture. One of the most popular study abroad destinations in Europe, Germany offers an inclusive and exciting exchange experience at every turn!

“Since my YFU experience in Germany, I have lived 23 years in 9 different countries including Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Australia, the Netherland, The United Kingdom and of course the USA. My cultural understanding experience was a highly valued commodity in work and helped me take on international roles in my company. What a jump start on life and exploring the world.”
