A pre-semester German language course, worth 5 ECTS, is available to exchange students for 270 EUR. The semester-long “German for Foreigners” language courses are not included in the reciprocal exchange program, but students can take a language-learning course at their skill level (placement test upon arrival) for a fee of 48 EUR per course and semester, transferring back the equivalent of 3 OU German language credit hours per course.

During the semester, exchange students are expected to take courses with German students. Exchange students may select any courses provided through the seven TUB colleges. Additionally, courses may be taken at both the Humboldt and Free Universities while participating as an exchange student through TUB, but exchange students must take half of their course load at TUB.
