    Language learning in Berlin


    More than a language school

    The F+U Group of Companies is one of the largest private education providers in Germany. It has centres throughout the Federal Republic as well as in other European countries and cooperates with state and private education providers all over the world. In the capital city, Berlin, F+U specialises in professional and continuing further education, as well as commercial retraining and qualifications.

    The successful dual-study bachelor degree programmes and the modern distance, full-time and dual-study master’s programmes at the VICTORIA | International University offer young people practice-focused education. The programmes are increasingly orientated to the needs of international students; the new BA International Management programme is delivered in English.


    Since 2013, the Academy of Languages Berlin has expanded this range of educational programmes with its worldclass, academically demanding language, company and computer courses, held at the International Educational Campus near Potsdamer Platz, at clients’ own premises or live online in virtual classrooms. The Berlin school is continuing the tradition first begun in 1980 in the romantic Neckar city of Heidelberg. The original F+U language school, the Academy of Languages Heidelberg welcomes over 10,000 learners and examination candidates from over 100 countries every year and is one of the largest and most successful language schools in Germany.

    Our extensive network of teaching experience and educational competence benefits all our Berlin language school customers. Our learners include international students aiming to improve their German in readiness for higher education or preparing for the Feststellungsprüfung, as well as local people keen to enhance their foreign language skills, for example in Business English or in preparation for the TOEFL® exam. Our flexible inhouse training is also a popular choice for companies and diplomatic missions.

    Since January 2017 our Berlin language school has also functioned as the International Office of the VICTORIA | International University. This means we are able to support international university applicants throughout the entire application process and offer valuable first-hand tips and information, also during the language course.
