Free University of Berlin

Located outside Berlin, this institution offers courses in German, English, and Spanish. Although the original agreement only concerns graduate students, undergraduate students are welcome to apply as well.

Winter semester: October 1st to March 31st (classes go from October 13th to February 14th).
Summer semester: April 1st to September 30th (classes go from April 13th to July 18th). Admission application deadline: October 30th.

Interested students must be endorsed by El Colegio de México, send the application form, and provide the following documents:

  1. Application form
  2. Official grade transcript
  3. Passport copy
  4. Resume
  5. Study plan, specifying the classes the student would like to enroll in

Language requirement: it is expected that the students taking classes in German (which are most of the offered courses) have a B2 level of this language. The course list can be consulted here.

Every exchange student must have a medical insurance certificate. We recommend the option offered by the university itself, German student health insurance, which costs 80 euros per month.
