Academic Program


3-4-semester credits

The Freie Universität Berlin German Language and European Studies Program (FUBiS) was specifically created by one of Germany’s top universities to offer North American and international students courses in language, culture, fashion, history, international relations, and more that focus on Germany and its role in Europe.

Students in this summer program may elect to take only German language coursework, coursework in English, or a combination.

FUBiS offers intensive summer programs for dedicated and diligent students. FUBiS German language courses focus on the development of language competence in writing, reading, listening, and speaking, and are taught at European Framework Levels A1 – C1.
FUBiS content courses in English give students the opportunity to seriously engage in and further their knowledge of a subject matter.



API students receive their transcript from Freie Universität Berlin (FUBiS) upon completion of their program.
