A Great Experience in a Great City

Being part of FUBiS Term I 2014 was an experience I will never forget. I am a student form Costa Rica, and I love visiting new places and getting to know new cultures. While I was in Berlin, I took the course European Studies through FUBiS at Freie Universitat Berlin. I really enjoyed this class even though I was not very familiar with the subject matter. In fact, that was the reason why I decided to enroll in this class; I wanted to learn about the European Union and its diverse countries and cultures. I finished the program last January 25, and I can say I am totally satisfied with the course, FUBiS staff members and the people I had the opportunity to share with. One aspect that I want to highlight from the classes is that I had the opportunity to visit different important government-related buildings where we were able to understand the subject matter in a richer way. Another important feature of the program is that, even though I could count on the staff members to help me, it was really myself the one who had to experience different circumstances and learn from them. Besides, Berlin is a wonderful and safe city, which allows students to look for new adventures while still being able to complete the academic work successfully. Finally, and probably my favorite aspect of the program, I had met amazing people while in the program. It was so much fun to get together every day after school to share experiences or just to get to know each other a little more. I realized that, even though Spanish is spoken in most of the Latin American countries, we speak a totally different Spanish. I loved how we became friends in such a short time to the point that now I want to visit Brazil, Colombia, South Korea, and so many more countries. In sum, if you are looking for a multicultural, academically-enriching and personal traveling experience, I definitely recommend FUBiS International Summer and Winter University. As I said at the beginning, it's going to be an experience never to forget.

FUBIS Winter Term I

In January 2014 I had the great opportunity to participate in the Freie Universität Berlin International Summer and Winter University (FUBiS) Term I 2014. The program took place from January 4 until January 25, 2014 and I took part in the course “European Studies“ with Professor Ulrich Brückner. My time in Berlin was really enriching, both academically and personally.
The “European Studies” course was very interesting and it sure did add a lot to my formation as an International Relations student. It was great being able to relate content learnt back home at my university with the classes in Berlin. In class, we had the opportunity to make individual presentations and discussions, which allowed each student to show his own point of view and also get to know the others better. In the afternoon excursions and talks, we were able to see the content learnt in class being put in practice by people who are in the field. For me this was really inspiring since we got to have unique talks and meet people I would never have the opportunity to meet if not through FUBIS.
Another great aspect of my FUBIS experience was having met so many different and amazing people. Because of FUBIS I now have friends all over the world. The course brought together people from different countries and backgrounds, which made us deal with these differences and also learn a lot with them. The daily basis contact with the other students in class and in the accommodation was a unique aspect of my FUBIS experience.
For me as a student the whole FUBIS program was really well organized since the subscription of the application until now (and I believe ever). We constantly received very informative emails which directed us what to do and when as well as the excursions, which went perfect. Besides, I was always well advised by the FUBIS Team, who was always were always very helpful and nice.
I had already been in Berlin before and I have always loved the city’s atmosphere. Being able to visit Germany’s capital again was great (even with the freezing temperatures!). I think Berlin is a great city for students and hope to come back as one as soon as possible. I’m looking forward to studying in Germany soon.
Moreover, I am very glad to be now a FUBIS ambassador in Rio. I hope to be able to share this experience with other students. Besides, I also aim to attend other FUBIS courses in the future. It was certainly an unforgettable experience, which allowed me to learn a lot and also have lots of fun.
