The classes are aimed at applicants with direct or indirect higher education entrance qualification who have German language skills equivalent to having passed the B1 level or better. They are offered in three main areas: natural sciences, life sciences, and humanities and social sciences including economics.
After successfully training a total of 70 participants, Freie Universität Berlin will be able to offer new German classes for refugees at levels A1 and A2 beginning in September. The German classes serve as preparation for studying at the university. Registration for the German courses is also possible using the online registration form.
The various courses are part of the Welcome to Freie Universität Berlin program, which was put in place to facilitate refugees' access to studying in regular degree programs at the university. The Welcome program is funded by the Berlin Senate and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
