In this program, you will be immersed in German language and culture. You will directly enroll in FUBiS, the summer program of the Freie Universität of Berlin. Develop your intercultural communication skills by joining the international community of students from more than 50 countries that attends FUBiS every year. Further these skills by living with a local family in a homestay.
You will take one content course in English along with a German language course. Field trips to museums, memorials and cultural and political institutions are integral components of all classes. In some courses, you have the unique opportunity to attend specially organized and exclusive round-table discussions with decision makers, diplomats, and experts in their field of study.
Enroll with German and other international students in the FUBiS summer program, in either the four- or six-week term. Every year FUBiS offers more than 45 courses, including both content and German language classes. You will enroll in a semi-intensive German language course as well as one subject course taught in English or German. Content classes are kept small, with the number remaining below 18 students. Language courses will not exceed 15 students. Summer I (six weeks) course contact hours are 108 hours of semi-intensive German plus a 72 hour subject course. Summer II (four weeks) course contact hours are 48 hours of semi-intensive German plus 48 hours of one subject course. Note that GEO's Summer I corresponds to FUBiS term II and GEO's Summer II corresponds to FUBis term III. Actual credit awarded is determined by the relevant department at your university in consultation with the study abroad office. Check with your study abroad advisor for more information.
The FUBiS staff are a dedicated team, motivated to organize this summer program for international students. FUBiS carefully selects its teaching faculty, and instructors must have demonstrated outstanding competence and experience in their particular discipline. Therefore, the FUBiS faculty are an exceptional group made up from many regions around the world.
