very interesting course but hmmmm they seem to struggle with how English kids get their exam results!

the application dates are June 1st - July 15th - now basically - and the interviews are early August (very handy) - however the qualifications required / certificates etc have to be completed and available by July 15th..

Tricky with A level results not coming out until August 16th. Sound like something you can only apply to after a gap year but by that time (next summer) will probably have already got other things sorted out

Freiburg is one of the most established and prestigious universities in Germany. It was founded in 1457 and is a member of the U15 which is equivalent to the Russell group in the UK.

This Liberal Arts and Sciences Program (LAS) offered by the university college Freiburg (UCF) operates under the umbrella of the university of Freiburg. I expect it to be challenging and rewarding.

My only concern is that it is not well established and it is a bit too broad in todays specialized world. It tries to resemble the liberal art degrees offered by liberal art colleges in North America, where one is offered a broad oriented curriculum.

I can't tell you about the program, but the city is wonderful and the university is pretty good. I was a student there 78-79 and it was one of the great experiences of my life.
