Student Exchange

The International Women's Club Kassel supports the student exchange program of the Association of German-American Clubs, which annually gives about 25 German and 24 American students the opportunity to spend one academic year in the other host country.

The aim of this program is the care and development of German-American international understanding, in which not only the individual career planning of individuals, but also the personal commitment of students as "ambassadors of German-American friendship" is in the foreground.

The University of Kassel ( is one of the German partner universities. Every year, for example, one student from an American university is studying in Kassel. In return, one German student will have the opportunity to study at a college or university in the United States.

The selection of German students is made by the respective VDAC member club for their region. Interested students can apply at the International Women's Club Kassel (IFC).
