API at Freie Universitat in Berlin

Semester Program:
The Freie Universität Berlin European Studies Program (FU-BEST) was specifically created by one of Germany’s top universities to offer North American and international students cultural and business courses focusing on Germany and its role in Europe. What is unique about this program is that it is primarily offered in English, and on the North American calendar (as opposed to many other German universities which operate on a different academic calendar). All students are required to take a German language course, and depending on their level they will follow a regular (3-4 credit for beginners) or intensive (6-8 for non-beginners) credit option. They then select 2-4 culture options to round out their academic schedule. Advanced-level German speakers may wish to consider the GermanPLUS+ track. The GermanPLUS+ track consists of two German language and three subject courses, all taught in German. In addition to being one of Germany’s and Europe’s top universities, the FU-BEST program meets the FORUM on Education Abroad’s standards of excellence. FU-BEST is a fantastic option for students looking study abroad in Berlin and receive high-quality instruction in their native language. Students who are interested in studying at FU-BEST for an academic year are very welcome to do so. University protocol dictates that students should first apply only for the semester of their arrival. Arrangements to extend their stay for an additional month will be made on-site. Students are advised to speak with their home university about whether they should be registered as an academic year student in advance, or wait until their arrival on-site in Germany (and the subsequent extension of their stay) to modify their standing at the home university.

Summer Program:
The Freie Universität Berlin German Language and European Studies Program (FUBiS) was specifically created by one of Germany’s top universities to offer North American and international students courses in language, culture, fashion, history, international relations, and more that focus on Germany and its role in Europe. Students in this summer program may elect to take only German language coursework, coursework in English, or a combination.

HIGHLIGHTS  
A city once divided, Berlin lies at the heart of Germany – literally and figuratively. While it is the second most populous city in Europe (metropolitan area notwithstanding), it maintains a more tranquil feel than other large cities, as 1/3 of the city is composed of forests, gardens, and parks. Berlin is not only the political capital of Germany, but arguably one of Europe’s capitals of art, culture, and politics. Designated a UNESCO “City of Design”, it possesses amazing architecture, cuisine, museums, and music and is a favored destination for young travelers and students. Berlin is also home to some of the top universities in Germany and all of Europe, including API’s partners at Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
