Excellent place to study The four universities attract top academic minds The city's four universities are Berlin's major flagships as a science location. Almost 125,000 students are enrolled at these institutions of higher learning. In the federal excellence initiative, the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin were recognized for their concepts for the future. This means that they are among the eleven elite universities in Germany. Where the number of foreign guest scientists and scholars is concerned, they are among the leading universities in Germany. The human medicine institutes of both universities are united under one roof at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Freie Universität Berlin is an elite university with an international focus. With around 223 courses of study, it offers a uniquely diverse range of courses in the humanities and social sciences, as well as a wide selection of degree courses in the natural and life sciences, including veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and bioinformatics. Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is the oldest university in the city and is one of the 20 largest universities in Germany. In addition to the humanities and social sciences, its range of courses primarily focuses on mathematics, biology, biophysics, chemistry, informatics, and 12 degree courses in agricultural sciences alone. Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) in Berlin-Charlottenburg is the international calling card of the city where engineering, the natural sciences, and information technology are concerned. The TU Berlin is renowned for its vibrant startup environment. More than 20 companies are founded directly out of the TU Berlin each year. The Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) is the home of artistic education, the fine arts, visual arts, and product design. It is one of the largest creative labs of the city. Together with the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin, the Berlin Weissensee School of Art, and the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Art, the UdK is home to more than 5,000 students from all over the world.
