Yes! CBYX has many alumni of color who have had amazing exchange experiences. Of course, like any year in your life there will be challenges, but most of our alumni have reported that their experience was overwhelmingly positive. While the application is open, many of our CBYX partners organize virtual events where applicants can talk directly with alumni about their experiences and we encourage you to participate in one of those sessions.

Generally speaking, German policy supports multiculturalism and so do many Germans, which makes the country generally welcoming to travelers from diverse backgrounds. Resources for students of color are shared with participants before departing for Germany and can be made available upon request during the application process.
