Courses taken at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, can be counted towards your degree program at the LMU, so that the duration of your studies remains unaffected by your time abroad.

Program Costs and Financing

Students taking part in the Madison program are responsible for providing their own funds for living and travel expenses, as well as for tuition fees. The tuition fees for exchange students at UW Madison are approximately 10,000 – 15,000 USD per semester.

Should you be selected for the Madison program, we would gladly help you with the application for a LMU Prosa-Scholarship (German). However, please note that Prosa provides only a small stipend, which is not sufficient to cover the program costs.
