About the University 🏫


Schiller International University's unique mission has always been to promote, develop and shape international understanding. Schiller International University has educated more than 20,000 students from more than 100 countries across its campuses in USA (Tampa), Spanien (Madrid), Germany (Heidelberg) and France (Paris).


Students choose Schiller International University for their passion for international collaboration, global career opportunities, and the multicultural environment. In addition, there is a wide range of flexible studies and subjects, small class sizes, international campuses and tremendous opportunities to develop academically and professionally.


Everything is taught in English by renowned teachers from the UK and US, where the semester structure allows you to only have 1 subject per month. In this way, you can concentrate 100% on the specific subject. A month later, you start your second enrolled course until you have completed and passed all your registered courses.


You have exceptionally good opportunities to expand your international circle of friends and network at Schiller International University's study lounges, outdoor areas or social rooms, which are sensible places to start socializing.

About the city πŸŒ‡


If you are into sunny weather, beautiful and white beaches, this is the place for you. Tampa is beautifully located on Florida's west coast in Tampa Bay. In the bay you have the perfect conditions for water activities such as paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing. And when you get back from the beach, you don't have to worry about getting bored. With a population of about 400,000 citizens, you are guaranteed a vibrant city and nightlife.


Not so interested in the city life? Don't worry about it. You get the best of both worlds in Tampa because of the incredible scenery. The city is rich in natural parks you can go to, and if you're looking for theme parks, Tampa also has a great selection of these! The city has a total of 178 different parks. If you ever need to take a break from Tampa, you can be in Orlando in less than 2 hours by train. In Orlando, you can enjoy famous attractions, like Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios Florida.


The food in Tampa is heavily influenced by Latin America. Tampa is not far from Cuba and it is evident when you look at the menu. One of the city's famous staple foods is the Cuban sandwich, and people say you haven't been to Tampa if you haven't tasted it.


You'll definitely get a nice tan when living in Tampa. The city has a subtropical climate that means the weather is excellent all year round, so remember to pack your summer clothes before you leave.

I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.

I am going to Australia for a semester, and before finding Uniclub the whole application seemed impossible. These guys are simply the best. They have the right answer for literally every question that you have. They are helpful, quick, with excellent service

Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
