Students enrolled at the four institutions of the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) - Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin - can attend courses offered by any of the BUA partners. Joint BUA degree programs, BUA certificate programs, specially selected BUA modules, and courses offered under the Berlin Student Research Opportunities ProgramX (StuROPX) enable students to gain broader access to existing and new courses at all four partner institutions and to get actively involved in research projects in the context of the Grand Challenge Initiatives.

Berlin University Alliance joint degree programs are coordinated between the BUA partners and are designated as such due to their unique profile.
BUA joint degree programs meet the following specific criteria:
- Societal challenges of global importance are addressed in the courses offered.
- The qualifications gained in the courses improve the student's prospects in their future professional or academic career.
- Research-based education and the transfer of cutting-edge research are core elements of the curriculum.
- The courses offered feature an international dimension.
- The courses offered are interdisciplinary in nature.
BUA modules are modules at each of the four BUA institutions where a quota of places is reserved for students from the other institutions, respectively. The scheme is currently being developed.
The Berlin University Alliance has set itself the objective of strengthening the link between (top-level) research and teaching. The Alliance has established the Student Research Opportunities Programx (StuROPx) to achieve this ambition. StuROPx expands the opportunities available to students for participating in research projects in Berlin and gives them the chance to collect research experience at an early stage of their studies.
StuROPx is aimed at students as well as junior researchers. The program consists of two formats:
- X-Student Research Groups are research teams made up of doctoral candidates or postdocs, and students.
- X-Tutorials are research tutorials initiated and organized by students.
