The exchange of students and researchers has always been a priority at Freie Universität Berlin. Many students enrolled at Freie Universität go abroad for part of their studies, and exchange students from abroad are welcomed warmly.
Within Europe the most common form of exchange is through ERASMUS, but there are also other possibilities. As a matter of course, the university's researchers work closely with colleagues in other countries.
Every year, Freie Universität Berlin hosts an International Staff Week to bring university staff from all over Europe together and into dialogue about current and future administrative topics of interest.
In 2015 for the first time, Freie Universität Berlin held an International Week with numerous informational events as well as cultural and other festivities.
