MNU Europe

We believe that as a college student you should have the amazing opportunity to travel and study at the same time. Many students have told us that studying abroad has changed their lives!

We hope that you will take this opportunity to study alongside others on our campus in Europe. It is nestled in a small Swiss-German community along the beautiful Rhine river. And since it's right in the heart of Europe, it's easy for you to travel wherever you want: Madrid, Florence, Berlin; all of these cities and more are only hours away!

Integrated into your semester are multiple service opportunities, cultural immersion through travel-classes and lots of space for you to discover Europe with your friends! And the best thing yet: You won't lose time finishing in four years, because the courses we offer fit into your general education requirements!

  • Develop your global perspective
  • Service learning incorporated with a mission trip
  • Small class sizes with integrated travel
  • MNU Faculty, European Faculty and Nazarene Universities' Sabbatical Faculty
  • Travel to major European cities, with world-famous landmarks, cafes, museums, music and recreation
  • Student excursions and opportunities help you learn in context

With traditional semester options or short-terms, we're sure you'll never be the same after studying abroad!
