FUBiS is an intensive academic program through which students can earn credits that may be counted toward their degrees at their home institutions. FUBiS sessions run for 3 to 6 weeks and take place both in summer and winter.
The FUBiS program 2018 takes place at the following dates:
- FUBiS Term I: January 3 – January 25, 2018 (3 weeks)
- FUBiS Term II: June 2 – July 14, 2018 (6 weeks)
- FUBiS Term III: July 21 – August 18, 2018 (4 weeks)
Each term may be taken separately. Students can choose between subject courses (mostly taught in English) and German language courses.
The subject courses are offered within the fields of Architecture, Art history, Politics, Law, History, Media Studies, Economics, Literature, Philosophy, Film, and Music. In Term II and III, the subject courses may be combined with each other or with a semi-intensive German language course.
The German language courses are offered on up to five different levels of proficiency and take place as semi-intensive (3-4 days per week) or intensive (5 days per week) classes. The semi-intensive courses in Term II and III may be combined with a subject course.
Field trips are an integral part of all our courses. In addition, FUBiS offers excursions to the Berlin Reichstag and a River Boat Tour through Downtown Berlin as well as day and weekend trips to Potsdam, Dresden, and Leipzig.
