Excursion to Berlin
After the fall of the Wall, Berlin became the capital of unified Germany and a building boom began in the 1990s that included more than 30 major construction works in the east of the city. It has also become to be considered by many as the cultural capital of Central and Eastern Europe, excelling in every field but in particular those of dance/electronic music, contemporary art and dance, and classical and orchestral music. Berlin has three opera houses, over 150 theatres and playhouses, over 170 museums and collections and over 200 private galleries. Berlin also occupies a special place in Europe as an extremely liberal, socially progressive and tolerant city, placed in the heart of the continent, where East meets West.

Host families and tutor programme

Host family programme

Some students will have the opportunity to spend their time in Kiel with a host family. This will give you the chance to immerse completely in the German host culture and to see how German families live. Application forms (student profile) will be handed out to you through the University of Utah's International Center. After a host family has been selected for you through Kiel University, you will receive the family profile in order to contact them before your arrival in Kiel.

Für Gastfamilien - For host families: Familienfragebogen zum Herunterladen - Family Profile to download here.

Meet a local student

Moreover, Kiel University will offer a program "Meet a local student": University of Utah students will meet German students in order to practise their German, to see how German students live, and to see Kiel from a student's perspective.
