Fostering English Taught Courses (ETC)
In recent years LMU has steadily extended the opportunities to study in English, especially with regard to structured doctoral programs and international master’s programs. In addition, there is a growing range of individual courses taught in English within the context of German-language degree programs.
The project Fostering English-Taught Courses (ETC) aims to increase the number of courses taught in English and to enhance LMU’s long-term international profile.
