ISA has partnered up with Freie Universität to offer this exciting chance to study abroad in Berlin, Germany! Study in English or German in a number of subject areas such as art history, German & European studies, film studies, architecture, and more. German language classes are required, although no prior experience is required.
Stay with a carefully selected host family to be fully immersed in the German way of life, or opt to live in a full furnished studio apartment. A week long excursion is included in the program fee. Places traveled to in the past include Paris, Vienna, Munich or Prague, among others.
In 2014, GlobaLinks Learning Abroad merged with International Studies Abroad (ISA), therefore, the GlobaLinks program reviews may not accurately reflect the new program structure, which has been greatly improved through the integration with ISA.
Founded in West Berlin during the early Cold War period, Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) was established as a university for the "Free World" in West Berlin. Just about 40 minutes outside of Berlin's city center, ISA students will study on the university's Lankwitz campus. You can enjoy picking courses from a wide range of offerings instructed in English or German, and will take classes alongside ISA and other visiting international students.
Founded only in 2009, Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin (HWR) specializes in Business, Economics, and Law courses. HWR is both AMBA and AACSB accredited. The university is located about 20 minutes outside of Berlin’s city center with one campus in Schöneberg district & the other in Lichtenberg district. You’ll take most of your courses on HWR’s Schöneberg campus and have the opportunity to take a wide range of Business courses taught in English with other international students.
