Universities in Berlin

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

One of the three major universities of Berlin, its main building is situated right in the very heart of the city - just adjacent to the famous Brandenburg Gate. There are two other campuses:

  • Adlershof, southeast of the city centre.

  • Campus Nord, which is to the North.

Both are easily accessible by public transport and are regularly commuted by students who live in more central locations.

The Humboldt University of Berlin is considered a top German institute and accommodates students from all across the world. You can study Law, Social Sciences, Mathematics and Pure Sciences as well as Business and a host of other programs.

Humboldt maintains a comprehensive list of all faculties, departments and courses so you can check if it’s an option for you!

Student Associations

Student associations could become a major aspect of your life on exchange. They run events, arrange days out and all sorts of interesting, non-academic activities to help you enjoy yourself and meet fellow students.
