, "The program in Germany is based on an agreement between the German Federal State of Baden-Wuerttemberg and the CSU IP Office on behalf of the California State University System. The program is coordinated on the German side by the University of Tuebingen, where the CSU IP maintains its office. This arrangement allows students from a wide range of academic backgrounds and disciplines to pursue courses in their major area of study at one of the man and varied institutions of higher education included in the agreement... On arrival, all International Programs students are placed in a Preparatory Language Program (PLP), before the fall semester begins. The PLP is designed to provide rapid acquisition of language skills. After the PLP they move to their university placement. Most beginning and intermediate German language students will continue language studies at the University of Tuebingen. All students are expected to enroll in regular university courses in the second semester of their year abroad."
