We've experienced life as a German student, and we're here to help you do the same.

Jay Malone, founder

Jay studied twice in Germany during his undergraduate years at Miami University, where he received his B.A. in 2007 with a major in History and a minor in German. After a few years exploring Eurasia, Jay returned to Germany to study for his M.A. in Political Science at the University of Siegen. He decided to start Eight Hours and Change to help other American students to take advantage of the incredible opportunities offered by the German university system, and to improve the ties between the two countries he calls home.
