Bruchsal, Germany (dpa) - International University, a private English-language college in Bruchsal, south-western Germany, has failed, but tuition will continue amid efforts to find a new owner, the school's president, Bernd Doll, said Tuesday.

International, which has 200 students, was set up 10 years ago and produced its first "master of information and communication technology" graduates in 2000. It caters mainly to fee-paying non-German students.

He said the Bruchsal college was so indebted that it could not continue "in its current legal incorporation" and it was uncertain if there would be any intake of new students in the semester starting late this year. But tuition would continue for current students.

The "International University in Germany" was set up at the urging of German business and received government seed money.

Doll said an arrangement had been reached with the public University of Karlsruhe to use the Bruchsal campus.

Karlsruhe university would use the site to train 200 foreign preparatory students who are learning German and taking school-level subjects before sitting university-entrance examinations.
