Program Description:

Free University of Berlin

FUB4

The Free University of Berlin or Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin) is the largest of the four research universities in Berlin, Germany and it specialises in the humanities and social sciences, as well as on health and natural sciences.

Founded in West Berlin in 1948 during the early Cold War period as a result of students and academics wanting to be free to pursue their learning, teaching, and research activities, without being subject to political influence in the increasingly Communist-controlled Humboldt University, the name refers to West Berlin's status as part of the free world, as opposed to the Soviet-occupied areas surrounding the city.  The campus is located in the affluent Berlin suburb of Dahlem, just a short journey from the city centre.

The University has various offices abroad in New York, Beijing, New Delhi, São Paulo, Brussels, Cairo, and Moscow, that provide a platform for international co-operation
 

Did you know...

In the period leading up to the founding of the University, some students protesting for freedom were killed by the Soviet secret service, and so in 2007, the University dedicated a memorial to these students and presents a Freedom Award annually to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to freedom.
