The summer program of the International Summer and Winter University of Freie Universität Berlin (FUBiS) is starting with the six week long FUBiS term II on May 25, 2013. FUBiS term III will take place from July 13 – August 10, 2013. Registration for both terms is still possible.
FUBiS is an academic short-term program for international students offering intensive and semi-intensive German language courses as well as subject courses. It is FUBiS’ mission to provide international students with a premier study abroad program delivering the highest academic quality and furthering the development of intercultural competence.
In an intensive academic term spanning three to six weeks, FUBiS students not only enlarge their knowledge of a subject matter and/or improve their language skills, they also profit from an international setting rich with cultural diversity and from Berlin’s multitude of political, cultural, and scientific institutions that they will explore on field trips and during organized extracurricular activities.
There are three independent FUBiS terms – one in winter (three weeks) and two in summer (six and four weeks, respectively). Each term includes courses from the humanities and social sciences such as History, Art History, European Studies, German Studies, Architecture, Cultural Studies, Film Studies, Literature, and Political Science. These classes are held in English by distinguished German, American, and international faculty. In addition, FUBiS offers intensive and semi-intensive German language classes on up to five different levels of proficiency. In all courses, students can earn credits that may be counted towards their degrees at their home institutions. After the successful completion of the program every student receives an official transcript of Freie Universität Berlin indicating the class(es) taken, the number of contact hours, the number of ECTS credits earned, and the grade(s) received in order to make credit transfer easy.
