Studying in the heart of Berlin
Every year over 5,000 young people decide to embark on their studies at Humboldt-Universität in the heart of Berlin. There is hardly any other place where they can choose from the same variety: 185 degree courses – among them 21 international Master’s with lectures and seminars held in English.
Humboldt-Universität was one of the first universities to introduce Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in 2001. The name Humboldt-Universität is well known throughout the world, and the internationally recognised degrees open all doors for our graduates.
Courses are held at the traditional institutes of Campus Mitte, the picturesque Campus Nord or on the modern Natural Science Campus Adlershof. The newly constructed university library, the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum, gives access to more than four million books and periodicals in open stacks or by ordering them via the Internet.
Beyond the academic framework, Humboldt-Universität offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Nearly 100 different sports bring movement onto the campus; and the Language Centre offers a broad variety of courses not only ranging from Arabic to sign language, but also including German language courses for international students at many different levels.
Apart from the general and subject-specific advice and consultation services common to large universities, Humboldt-Universität offers a supplementary counselling and support network to students, thus providing legal, social as well as psychological guidance. Child care is offered on Campus Mitte and Campus Adlershof to support young parents during their studies. Furthermore, specific programmes help top athletes to combine their degree course with intensive training.
