Newsletter 1/2020 l Freie Universität Berlin Cairo Office

Apr 30, 2020

Dear Partners, Alumni and Friends of Freie Universität Berlin,

An extraordinary “digital summer semester” has just begun at Freie Universität Berlin. Everybody at FU Berlin has gone out of her/his way to offer our students a semester that is as normal as possible in light of the current global situation. 

With all the uncertainties pertinent to the COVID-19 pandemic, we at the Freie Universität Berlin firmly believe that: “only by working together across national borders, across cultural differences and across boundaries of fields of studies we can contribute to solving problems on a global scale,” as stated a few days ago by Prof. Günther Ziegler, the president of Freie Universität Berlin. (https://twitter.com/AvHStiftung/status/1254786549134225421?s=20)

We, at the FU Cairo Liaison office, would like to take this opportunity to reiterate our commitment to serve Egypt and the region in any questions related to studying at or cooperating with Freie Universität Berlin, especially in these difficult times and beyond.

To find out more information about the new deadlines for the applications of the Master’s programs, the Rising Star 2.0 Fellowship program or about our current activities at the FU Cairo office, please have a look at our newsletter. 

Last but not least, we would like to express our best wishes on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan. Wishing you all a blissful, joyful and peaceful month. RAMADAN KAREEM!

#staysafe & #stay@home

Best regards,

Freie Universität Berlin Cairo Liaison Office
