Fees & Admission

Admission prerequisites

Applicants to the FU-BEST program should

  • be at least 18 years old

  • have completed at least their second semester in a study program at a university or college, and be in the process of completing their B.A./B.S. degree

  • have a very good command of English in order to complete a rigorous academic program in that language (non-native speakers should plan to submit English test scores along with their application. For TOEFL, the score should be minimally 100. For IELTS, the overall score must be at least 6.5 and the scores on individual parts must be no lower than 6.0.)

  • be committed to participation in our intensive German language component (all levels offered, no prior knowledge of German required)

  • have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a scale of 4 (students whose GPA is below 3.0 are welcome to apply, but cannot be guaranteed admission to the program until their overall qualifications are more closely reviewed)

Course enrollment

Course enrollment is carried out on a first-come-first-served basis. As a result, a) it is recommended to apply as early as possible, b) it is not guaranteed that students get their top course choice(s) upon admission.
