FU Berlin - Full Profile

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.

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.
