Living in Bonn

The EPA program in Germany offers a unique and exciting opportunity to put your language skills into practice not only in the classroom, but in a professional setting. It’s a terrific way to explore your career interests while living and studying in an overseas setting. Bonn is the main administrative center of the program and the base, along with nearby Cologne, for all nonpolitics placements. Cologne is one of the oldest cities in Germany and currently the fourth largest, with a population of over one million people. Cologne is located 20 minutes by train from Bonn.
