The Junior Year in Munich is America's oldest intercollegiate study abroad program in Germany, and is officially affiliated with Germany's top-ranked university: Ludwig Maximilians Universität München (LMU Munich).
German University Integration
JYM insists on continuing the distinguished tradition of academically integrated study abroad -- a program model that offers maximum opportunity for the academic, cultural, and social immersion of US students studying abroad in Germany as bonafide German university students. Our status at LMU Munich makes this possible. JYM is not a so-called island program nor an American campus abroad. Rather, the JYM program enjoys privileged status as an affiliated academic institute approved by the LMU Munich Academic Senate, and an official course of study (Teil-Studiengang) approved by the Bavarian State Ministry of Culture. Hence our name, the "Junior Year in Munich an der Universität München."
How to Apply
Before applying for any program, students must view and complete the online Education Abroad Workshop prior to starting the UVA Study Abroad application. Please note that all Non-UVA programs require you to submit a separate application to the program, in addition to the one required by the International Studies Office at UVA. A program's own deadlines might be different from the UVA deadline for study abroad. Please refer to "Applying Online" for additional information. Both links can be found under the "Getting Started" tab on the UVA Study Abroad homepage.
