The opportunity for each student to experience full immersion in the German language and culture—while at the same time truly gaining a sense of independence—is what sets apart Cornell in Berlin as a premier study-abroad experience, according to this story on the Global Cornell website.

The program is a consortium between several U.S. universities and Berlin's Freie Universitaet (or Free University).

Patrizia McBride, professor and chair in the Department of German Studies, explains in the story that the Freie has a history of developing really strong international programs. “The Freie is a model of higher education that emphasizes the importance of international relations,” she says.
