Please consider the following:

The open house event is not part of the admission process and serves solely informative and advisory purposes. Participating in the event does not give you any additional credit for the admission requirements. However, it should help you to get to know the Master program and to prepare for the application. The Institute of Sociology does not provide accommodation nor arranges one. If you come from outside of Berlin you need to find a place to stay by yourself. A list of Berlin's hotels and hostels can be found here.

The open house event is about the Master Program "Sociology - European Societies" exclusively. If you wish to study a different program or if you just want to generally inform yourself about the possibilities to study at the FU Berlin, this event will be of no use to you. Please consider the respective websites of the FU Berlin for relevant information instead.

The open house program is held in English. Participation is free of charge. Since the number of participants is limited, previous registration is required.

Confirmations will be sent out on April 22, 2019.
