Language Courses at F+U
The non-profit 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 of Berlin, F+U specialises in professional and continuing further education, as well as in commercial retraining and qualifications. The successful dual model bachelor degree programmes at the International University of Cooperative Education (Internationale Berufsakademie - IBA) and the latest distance, full-time and dual master’s programmes at the University of Applied Sciences for Business, Technology and Culture (Hochschule für Wirtschaft, Technik und Kultur - HWTK) offer young people established, practical and internationally orientated educational opportunities that will also gradually become open to international students.
Since 2013, the F+U Academy Of Languages Berlin has complemented this wide range of courses with academically demanding language and computer courses of an international calibre, and thereby continues a tradition first begun in 1980 in the romantic Neckar city of Heidelberg. The parent of all F+U language schools, the Academy Of Languages Heidelberg teaches around 9,500 learners from over 100 countries every year and is one of the largest and most successful language schools in Germany. Additional schools in Tenerife, Darmstadt and Chemnitz have extended the scope of the courses offered, also geographically. All of our language learners in Berlin – whether international students seeking to improve their German in readiness for higher education or to prepare for the Feststellungsprüfung with the help of our International Prep School, or local people aiming to improve their foreign language skills, for example in Business English or TOEFL preparation – can profit from this innovative network of teaching experience and educational competence.
