Welcome Program

“Welcome to Freie Universität Berlin” is an extensive package of academic offerings and services aimed at making it easier for people who have had to leave their homeland to gain access to study programs.


New German Courses start in September (see the bottom below). For how to apply as a student, please read the information below.

German courses

German language skills are important for candidates who wish to start or continue an academic degree in Germany. With this in mind, the Freie Universität offers German language courses on different levels starting in February.

Advising offers

For questions regarding studying at the Freie Universität, interested refugees can seek advice from the Student Service Center. The Welcome program does not offer any councelling sessions.
