№ 006/2016 from Jan 11, 2016
The tenth winter term of FUBiS, the International Summer and Winter University of Freie Universität Berlin, started on Sunday with 83 participants. During the three-week program they take German language courses and other subjects. Three of the other classes are taught in English and one in Spanish. Most of the students are from South Korea, Brazil, and the United States. The term will run through January 28.
The students can choose courses from among various subjects as well as German-language classes. The seminars taught in English deal with the history and politics of the European Union, the history of the Berlin Wall, and the historical and theoretical perspectives of the intersection between law, society, and politics. The seminar currently being taught in Spanish deals with political perspectives in terms of processes, institutions, and initiatives relating to gender equality in the European Union.
Students can earn internationally recognized credits for all the FUBiS courses. In addition to the classes held on the Lankwitz campus of Freie Universität, there are field trips to important sites in the Berlin-Brandenburg region, including tours of the government district in Berlin and tours of Potsdam.
The FUBiS Summer University was held for the first time in 1998, and in 2007 a winter term was added. In 2010 the academic quality of FUBiS was recognized by the Forum on Education Abroad, and in 2015 FUBiS drew a record number of 660 students to Freie Universität.
