The program begins with an intensive six week Preparatory Language Program (PLP) in Horb, a small town near Tuebingen. The PLP is a German language and culture course focusing on grammar, composition and conversation, as well as an introduction to German culture. Students then move to Biberach to continue their studies in architecture. Students take one German language course each semester, in addition to their architecture courses. Biberach University of Applied Sciences is a technical university; courses focus on the practical element right from the beginning and topics for study projects are drawn from practical experience. The University's institutions make up an interdisciplinary platform for teaching.

For more information about the academic program, students may refer to the CSU IP Academic Bulletin. Note that course offerings are subject to change and may not be offered during the year of intended study.

The town is surrounded by striking environments (including the Allgäu region and Lake Constance) and is close in proximity to Austria and Switzerland.

During the PLP in Horb, students live with host families, as arranged by the CSU IP staff in Germany.  In Biberach, students will stay in student dormitories, which consist of single, furnished rooms with a sink and small kitchenette.
