More than twice as old as Nuremberg or Munich, Augsburg was founded in 15 B.C. by the Roman commanders Drusus and Tiberius. Augsburg is the third-largest city in Bavaria and is the seat of the Schwabian regional government. Rudolf Diesel constructed the first internal combustion engine here, Linde built the first refrigerator, Messerschmitt created the first mass-produced jet airplane. Today, with its rich heritage, Augsburg and the region are centers for industry, science, art and culture. Augsburg has circa 275,000 inhabitants and is the third largest economic- and industrial center in Bavaria.

The University of Augsburg was founded in 1970. It is one of the new, modern universities in Bavaria, with approximately 15,000 students. Fourteen percent of its student body is comprised of foreign students.


Every summer the University of Augsburg Law School offers a six-week program in European and International Economic Law. Participants must have successfully completed their first year of law school. Along with the courses, there are also scheduled lectures on foreign legal systems and a German language course. Summer course dates are from mid-June to the end of July.

Interested students should contact the Office of International Programs to set up an appointment time to discuss application procedures and requirements, done through the UNC Summer School Program, if awarded the UNC Center for Banking and Finance Scholarship.
