Studying and Working in Ludwigsburg

Situated a few miles north of Stuttgart in the state of Baden Württemberg, Ludwigsburg could easily be mistaken for a suburb. But, it's a lot more than that. For starters, this Swabian town is historically important, having been home to the Dukes of Württemberg for centuries. The splendid Ludwigsburg Palace shows how wealthy they once were.

Nowadays, the town is predominantly famous for education. It hosts four specialist universities, the largest of which being the Pädagogische Hochschule (Ludwigsburg University of Education), which is joined with the University of Applied Sciences (focusing on civil servants) as well as a hugely prestigious film school and a performing arts academy. Most cater to international students, offering a host of exchange programs abroad. However, to study at the teacher training college, applicants will need excellent German (up to around TestDaF-4).
