Proof of Foreign Language Skills at Freie Universität Berlin
Freie Universität Berlin does not check the language level of exchange students when they are being nominated by their home universities. The FU Incoming Office trusts its partner universities to select only students who have language skills at the B 2 level.
Proof of Foreign Language Skills at your Home University
Please check at your home university's Student Exchange Office, whether you need to prove the B 2 level at your home university at the time of application for your stay abroad or not.
Admission at Freie Universität Berlin with a Lower Level of Foreign Language Skills
In the months before you arrive in Berlin, during the time of your pre-enrolment, you will be asked to submit a language certificate to the FU Incoming Office. If you do not have a language certificate, you may submit a self-assessment in the online portal.
Exchange students will be admitted by Freie Universität even if they cannot prove their language level by a language certificate, or if the language certificate shows a lower level than B 2.
