Exchange with the
Universitat Berlin (TUB) is one of three
universities in Berlin and the largest technical
university in Germany. With eight distinct
departments, TUB offers classes in 50 subject areas
covering all fields of study. Students have the
opportunity to study with over 30,000 students,
one-fifth of them being international students from
130 different countries. Located in the middle of a
city full of history and culture, students learn much
more than classroom material.
INSTITUTION: Each year
students from TUB come to Salisbury University to
study and students from Salisbury travel to TUB.
There are two exchange slots available to SU students
at the Technische Universitat Berlin each semester.
Students must have at a minimum elementary competency
in German, normally demonstrated by the completion of
German 102. Selection for the exchange slots is
competitive. Exchange students pay the equivalent of
full time tuition and fees to their home institution
and study tuition-free at their host university.
Additional fees include international airfare, room
and board in Berlin, insurance, passport and visa
fees, and personal expenses. Costs may fluctuate
according to the exchange rate.

Moreover, TUB has a high proportion of international
students, as many as 20% of its total student
population in 2007. Foreign students are welcomed and
well-supported during their time studying at TUB. All
coursework is offered in German. Exchange students
with lower competency in German are encouraged to
apply for the fall semester and travel early to Berlin
for a one month intensive language program before the
beginning of classes.

University of Berlin is nestled amidst all of this
bustling activity and SU students have ample

cities in the world has to offer.
