For information on the application process for international students click here

Although the MA Global History is a joint program by Freie Unversität Berlin and Humboldt Universität zu Berlin the formal application process is handled solely by Freie Universität. All applications must therefore be sent to the Freie Universität's Department for Application and Admittance (applicants holding a degree from a German university) or be submitted via uni assist (all other applicants).

Applications that are sent directly or via e-mail to the Freie Universität's Friedrich-Meinecke-Institut will not be considered.

Please note the following: Unfortunately, we cannot answer any enquiries regarding the formal application process via Freie Universität and/or uni assist (e.g. necessary documents, certification etc.), as applications are handled by a different department. In these matters, please contact the FU’s admission office, or

Please refrain from enquiries about the status of your application. Notifications on acceptance or refusal can be expected by the end of July the earliest.
