Excellent services for international students
Housing, cultural program & more
We love what we do, and it is our passion to ensure that your stay is as safe as it is fulfilling and memorable. We achieve that by providing a range of support services.
Please check the websites of the individual programs for up-to-date information about their respective services. All programs have specialized in different areas over the years and services vary from program to program. Some examples:
✓ course consultations:
we will help you find the courses which suit your interests and abilities.
✓ excursions and cultural programs:
we offer a variety of extracurricular activities and optional excursions in and around Berlin and its surroundings.
Berlin is home to 11 state and about 30 private universities. As a result, students face difficulties finding short-term accommodation of an acceptable price and quality. Our accommodations team is happy to offer Freie Universität Berlin students a range of options meeting or exceeding these criteria.
✓ German insurance package:
Health, accident and liability insurance for a reasonable additional fee
We are committed to accommodating and welcoming students with varying capacities and needs.
Although our programs do not feature a standardized scholarship program, we seek scholarship funding, which allows us to provide a varying number of scholarships to selected students each year.
✓ visa matters:
Some of our programs assist students in completing certain key stages of the visa application process.
