The 2015 German College Visit Tour Logo.jpg



The Eight Hours and Change High School College Visit aims to better inform Juniors and Seniors about student life in Germany. The goal of the trip is to provide a similar experience to a traditional American College Visit and to show the diversity of German higher education, both in terms of study opportunities and surroundings, while giving participants a chance to interact with currently enrolled university students, discuss programs and courses with professors, check out the dorms and other campus facilities, and even test out the fare in the university dining halls. 
The trip will be led by Eight Hours and Change founder Jay Malone and Tobey McBride, a middle school teacher from Columbus, Ohio. We will be staying in special youth hostels called Jugendherberge throughout the trip that are specially organized to accommodate student groups.

Graduate College Visit

The Eight Hours and Change Graduate College Visit aims to provide prospective adult students with the perspective they need to make an informed decision about where and whether or not to study in Germany. We will visit bucolic country villages and major metropolises, talk with professors and students, and immerse ourselves as deeply as possible in the German university culture.

The 2015 Graduate College Visit will be limited to three students so as to give each participant a chance to choose destinations that fit their interests best. Students who sign up can choose which universities they want to visit.
