Full Academic Year Education Program with Soccer Training & Development — Placement with Semi-Professional/Amateur German Football Clubs

IFX participants are enrolled either into an intensive German language school to learn how to read, write and speak the German language or into our partner Business School/University. In the University program, students pursue either an undergraduate Bachelor's Degree or Graduate Master's Degree. Students will be provided with accommodations during their participation of the program. Accommodations are shared apartments with other roommates from around the world.

A full immersion into the German culture is one of the main goals of our program.

This immersion program enables competitive participants over the age of 18 the opportunity to play soccer for a German semi-professional/Amateur club for one full or one half season. Players are placed to train and compete with a German club according to their level of play. An initial evaluation period upon arrival in Germany determines club placement.
