What should I do in case of emergency?

The emergency telephone number in Germany is:

  • 112 – Fire-fighters / Ambulance / Police

FUBiS has a 24/7 emergency phone that students can call at night and on the weekends. Students will receive the number of the FUBiS emergency phone as well as other important numbers to keep in mind in our pre-departure information package and again at the orientation meeting. During office hours, the FUBiS team will be available for students in the office (Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in House L, Malteserstr. 74-100, 12249 Berlin), via phone (+49 838 73472) and via email (fubis@fubis.org). During classes and field trips, students can always approach their instructors for quick help.

FUBiS is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and secure study abroad experience to all program participants. The well-being of all students is our highest priority. FUBiS believes that the support and the preparation of the staff and faculty on-site as well as the responsibility of all participants contribute to a successful and safe study abroad experience.

FUBiS program staff are regularly in contact with the university management, local and foreign authorities, partner institutions and study abroad associations about health and security standards. The FUBiS team is prepared to provide support to students with information about local health and safety services and to arrange for assistance in case of an emergency. Essential information will be shared in pre-departure information emails, during on-site orientation meetings and throughout the program with all constituencies.
