FUBiS offers intensive and semi-intensive German language classes on up to five different proficiency levels. In addition, FUBiS offers subject classes on various class topics. These classes are held mostly in English by distinguished German and international faculty.
The FUBiS program offers students many choices:
- Participation in either one semi-intensive German class or in one subject class.
- Intensive German language classes. These classes meet every weekday and allow students to focus on and thus considerably improve their German skills.
- Combination of language and subject classes (Term II/III). This allows students to improve their language skills as well as further their knowledge of a subject matter.
- Combination of two subject classes (Term II/III) which may count toward a major or minor at the home institution.
The number of participants in each course is limited to 18 (15 in language courses). In exceptional cases, more participants per class may be allowed.

Study and Field Trips
FUBiS classes make use of the vast historic, cultural, and political institutions and resources Berlin offers. Study and field trips to museums, memorials as well as political and cultural institutions are integral parts of the curriculum. In some classes students have the unique opportunity to attend specially organized and exclusive round-table discussions with decision makers, diplomats, and experts in their field of study.
In addition to the academic program FUBiS offers a number of excursions.
