Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of Social Sciences

Study at the HU

Welcome to the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin! On the following pages we will explain how the course programme is arranged in order to make the start of university studies and life here easier. There is also a guide for international students with general information about studying at HU and life in Berlin. 


  • Information on application and enrolment for an exchange programme (e.g. Erasmus+) is available from the HU International Office


  • Students planning a stay at HU without an exchange programme can also obtain application information from the International Office.


  • However, the Department of Social Sciences does not offer opportunities for “free movers” or students not on exchange programmes.


  • HU students interested in doing a semester of studies abroad can visit the Student Advisory Centre website for information.


  • For frequently asked questions regarding writing assignments, essays, thesis papers and so on, consult the leaflet on “academic papers”. This is available from the Student Advisory Centre (Universitätsstraße 3b, room 304). Felix Müller also offers office hours during which you can obtain help with questions regarding the written and oral work required by the Department of Social Sciences.
