Information for Exchange Students Studying at Freie Universität

Currently, the plan for the 2021 summer semester is to offer a mix of remote and on-site courses. The first day of classes is April 12, 2021, and classes end on July 17, 2021.

If you enroll in the 2021 summer semester, you can take online courses offered at Freie Universität without traveling to Germany. However, most courses will take place completely online and will provide online testing options for exams.

Please inform the student mobility team for incoming students at incoming@fu-berlin.de as soon as possible before the beginning of the semester if you do not intend to travel and wish to study completely online at Freie Universität. The staff team will then provide you with further information.

If you were planning on studying abroad at Freie Universität Berlin during the 2021 summer semester, you are welcome to postpone your plans and come during the 2021/2022 winter semester.

Please let us know if you do wish to postpone by email at incoming@fu-berlin.de. You should also inform your home institution and let them know that they need to nominate you again for the 2021/2022 winter semester. We will accept both students who postponed their study abroad as well as the regular nominees for the winter semester.

Please be aware of the current obligations for quarantine and reporting if you are coming from a country at particular risk. You can find the regulations here: https://www.berlin.de/corona/en/measures.

If you are required to go into quarantine, you may not visit the campus of Freie Universität during that period. You may only take part in digital classes and online exams.
