Summer Abroad: Germany: Berlin

This will be the 17th year that the University of Toronto has offered a summer program in Berlin. Over 650 students have participated in the program since it began. Your classroom will be located in Gendarmenmarkt Square, the historic hub of Berlin, amid famous landmarks such as the French Cathedral, the German Cathedral and the State Concert Hall.

Students are housed in Apartments am Brandenburger Tor, which is located between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz. The apartments are conveniently located close to the public transport system (U-Bahn, S-Bahn) and are walking distance from the classrooms.

There are two courses offered in 2020. Each course is worth one full-year credit and is contingent on adequate enrolment. Classes take place Monday to Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Mandatory field trips are an integral part of each course and may occur outside of class time on afternoons or Fridays.
