Schwäbisch Hall

The German town, twinned with Loughborough, meets the cost of course fees, board and lodgings, meaning the student only has to meet cost of travel to and from Schwäbisch Hall.

The students have the opportunity to improve the German language in both speaking and writing and also take the opportunity to see Germany.

Schwäbisch Hall is a small town but has a lot to offer young people.
