Experiment e.V.

During their entire stay in Heidelberg all AJY students live in university dormitories.  Short-term homestays (one to two weeks duration) with German families are available, however, to full year and full semester students who wish to experience life in and with a German family. Typically, these homestays take place during the holiday season in December or during the break between the fall and the spring semester (mid-February to mid-April). 

AJY cooperates with ‘Das Experiment’, a German non-profit organization that offers homestays throughout Germany. These homestays are available at virtually no charge to the student and are highly recommended.

Prospective students who are interested in this should consult the Experiment e.V. website. Please be sure to contact AJY ( well in advance to ensure placement - places are limited.
