Freie Universität Berlin European Studies Program

FU-BEST is a semester program offered in a Fall and a Spring semester. Our mission is to educate responsible, global citizens by promoting intercultural exposure in a multi-faceted environment. We aim to provide an intensive and diverse study abroad experience through combining three essential elements: German language instruction, a varied menu of subject courses, and the concept of the “extended classroom.”

Small classes, expert faculty, and the availability of day-to-day guidance are designed to enable students to make the most of this unique educational opportunity. Using Berlin's rich cultural, political, and historical offerings as a resource, all courses integrate local field-trips into their curriculum and thus profit from the outstanding location of this fascinating city.

We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin!

Shaping your future as a global citizen!

FU-BEST is part of Freie Universität Berlin Global Campus initiative that brings together the Freie Universität Berlin's short-term study options tailored especially for international students. Visit their website here.
