Placement in a Public School

High School at a German Public School

Students benefit from a total immersion experience during a full or half-year stay in Germany. Most of our partner schools are in the Lake Constance region, but we are also happy to arrange for school placement in other locations.

Selected schools have various profiles and areas of specialization. Lessons in Geography, History, Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Social Studies, etc. are in German and we recommend that students have at least level B2 (CEFR) language skills.

Students stay with homestay families who have been personally selected by Carl Duisberg Centren. Participants settle in, feel at home and meet friends quickly. At the beginning of the program, language skills are assessed to ensure that students have the required language proficiency. We recommend the High School Preparatory Program.
