Dear Partners, Alumni and Friends of Freie Universität Berlin,

Eveybody at Freie Universität Berlin is super excited that we are planning to return to in-person teaching for the 2021/2022 winter semester while of course continuing to observe the necessary hygiene and safety measures! Certain departments may continue to offer online or hybrid courses. For this special occasion we launched the #yeswecampus campaign. Make sure to follow us on our social media platforms to find out how we are going to celebrate the back on campus moments!

As usual our newsletter carries tons of opportunities for scholars who are interested to join us in Berlin but also news and information on all the upcoming activities of our Cairo liaison office.
Have a look at our many activities that will take place over the next couple of months and get an idea on the various calls that are currently open.

Enjoy reading and exploring the opportunities!
