American Space Leipzig is an initiative between the Universität Leipzig and the U.S. Government to encourage learning, exchange, and dialogue between the United States and Germany.


Planning for a possible year in the United States to attend university, spend a year at high school, pursue an internship, or maybe be part of a cultural exchange program can be exciting and perhaps a bit daunting. American Space Leipzig offers consultation hours for students considering spending time in the United States as part of a structured program. We have two advisors as part of our team. These are:

Carlo Becker
Internship Office Hours:
Mondays, 14:00 – 15:00

Anja Eifert
Study Abroad Office Hours:
Wednesdays, 15:30 – 16:30

They both can be reached at Their office is located at the Institute for American Studies.

To get started with your adventure, a very useful website is the US Embassy’s “Study and Internships in the USA”. Also very useful (and in German) is the website that provides information about everything from a possible high school exchange to an au pair year to internships.
