A city once divided, Berlin lies at the heart of Germany - literally and figuratively. While it is the second most populous city in Europe (metropolitan area notwithstanding), it maintains a more tranquil feel than other large cities, as 1/3 of the city is composed of forests, gardens, and parks.
Berlin is not only the political capital of Germany, but arguably one of Europe's capitals of art, culture, and politics. Designated a UNESCO "City of Design", it possesses amazing architecture, cuisine, museums, and music and is a favored destination for young travelers and students. Berlin is also home to some of the top universities in Germany and all of Europe, including API's partner Freie Universität Berlin (FU-BEST).
The Freie Universität Berlin European Studies Program (FU-BEST) was specifically created by one of Germany's top universities to offer North American and international students cultural and business courses focusing on Germany and its role in Europe. What is unique about this program is that it is primarily offered in English, and on the North American calendar (as opposed to many other German universities which operate on a different academic calendar). All students are required to take a German language course, and may opt for a regular (3-4 credit) or intensive (6-8) credit option. They then select 2-3 culture options to round out their academic schedule.
In addition to being one of Germany's and Europe's top universities, the FU-BEST program meets the FORUM on Education Abroad's standards of excellence. FU-BEST is a fantastic option for students looking to experience the sights and sounds of Berlin, and still receive high-quality instruction in their native language.

Academic Programs International, API, is an educational organization dedicated to providing challenging and enriching study abroad programs for our students. The experience of living, interacting and learning in an international environment presents invaluable opportunities for each student's academic and personal development. All of our academic and extracurricular offerings are selected with the goal of helping students to grow more self-aware and culturally sensitive. We envision each student evolving from a tourist to a resident to a global citizen, and API is dedicated to supporting this lifelong process. API is committed to providing the best comprehensive study abroad experience possible with personal attention available to our students throughout his or her program, and to working closely with home universities to offer support before, during and after the education abroad experience.
