Studying Abroad

Freie Universität Berlin cooperates with selected universities around the world. Therefore, the university offers the possibility for its students to take part in several exchange programmes. Studying abroad enables students to gain valuable professional and personal experiences, as well as new language skills.

For further information about exchange programmes, please contact the International Office at Freie Universität, where information and advice is provided about our various programs, the application deadlines, and the application requirements.
