About the program:
SRH Heidelberg teaches in block mode. Block mode allows you to study one unit at a time over 5 weeks. You have the opportunity to join German students and other internationals on a ‘mini exchange’ to one of the most beautiful towns in Europe. Pick from one of the below units on offer in the November block and add an international perspective to your degree. You also have the option to attend a second block in January and stay in Heidelberg from November - February. Please email short-term-abroad@deakin.edu.au if you are interested. Please note, block mode also means there is no particular student welcome for international students, you simply start the class as all other domestic students do.

Location profile:
Surrounded by forest, 93km south of Frankfurt, Germany’s oldest and most famous university town is renowned for its baroque old-town, spirited student atmosphere, beautiful riverside setting and evocative half-ruined hilltop castle, which draws 11.8 million visitors a year. They follow in the footsteps of the late 18th- and early 19th-century romantics, most notably the poet Goethe. Britain’s William Turner also loved Heidelberg, which inspired him to paint some of his greatest landscapes.
In 1878, Mark Twain began his European travels with a three-month stay in Heidelberg, recounting his observations in A Tramp Abroad (1880). Heidelberg's rich literary history, along with its thriving contemporary scene involving authors, translators, publishing houses, bookshops, libraries, festivals and events, saw it named a Unesco City of Literature in 2014.
Heidelberg’s old-town has a red-roofed townscape of remarkable architectural unity. After having been all but destroyed by French troops under Louis XIV (1690s), it was built pretty much from scratch during the 18th century. Unlike the vast majority of German cities, it emerged from WWII almost unscathed. Today, Heidelberg is one of Germany’s most enchanting cities. The longer you stay, the more heartstopping panoramas and hidden treasures you’ll discover.
