About

Spend a semester, academic year or summer in Berlin, Germany with AIFS. You’ll earn up to 15 credits per semester depending on program selection through a variety of courses studying at Freie Universität, Berlin. Courses are offered in English and in German.

The summer program is an 8-week, full-time internship combining weekly classroom seminars with global work experience in Berlin. You’ll gain practical exposure to the demands of specific jobs while developing your professional and personal skills. Past internships have been in business, event management, health care, international education, marketing, policy consulting, and social work.

Berlin, with its cultural and cosmopolitan kaleidoscope, provides a vibrant background for studying abroad. Few European cities have undergone such continual redefinition and change. Berlin’s restored identity as the nation’s capital has been the driving force in both design and cultural diversity. 

Immerse yourself in the culture of Berlin through activities such as guided city tours, visits to museums and historical sites, boat trips, German cooking classes and a day trip to Potsdam.
