The University

Truth, Justice, Freedom

Truth, Justice, Freedom

The founding motto of the Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin) - "Truth, Justice, Freedom"- has shaped its history since 1948. With more than 41,000 students from 140 countries enrolled in over 100 academic programs of study, the FU Berlin is the largest university in Germany's capital, and one of the largest in the nation. FU Berlin maintains international offices, e.g. in New York, Beijing, São Paulo and Moscow. Owing to its internationally recognized achievements in both teaching and research, the FU exerts a strong attraction on students from Germany and beyond. The university's research activities in the Humanities and in the Social and Natural Sciences are distinguished by their international orientation, as well as by the interdisciplinary and collaborative character of work carried out by a number of research networks: the FU Berlin's twelve Collaborative Research Centres, eight Research Training Centres, six DFG Research Units and the participation in a DFG Research Centre are ample evidence of this.

Potsdam Square in Berlin

Berlin is the largest city in Germany and its capital. At the geographical centre of a growing Europe, Berlin is the gateway between East and West. The Federal Chancellery and Parliament are literally only minutes away from a number of global corporate headquarters and trade associations. Berlin's cultural programme is extremely rich. Berlin has three opera houses, over 150 theatres and playhouses, over 170 museums and collections and over 200 private galleries. In addition, the capital is host to numerous top acts, artists and bands - every day nearly 1.500 events are on Berlin's cultural calendar. The city is host to the international film festival Berlinale and the Art Forum annual international art fair. Berlin also offers one of the most diverse and vibrant nightlife scenes in Europe. Most Berliners take great pride in their city's reputation as one of the most socially progressive cities on the continent.

Many students share a flat together ("Wohngemeinschaft" or "WG") to make accommodation cheaper and to get to know other students from different programmes and with different backgrounds.
