Courses offered by other Berlin universities

Students are very welcome to attend courses at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU), Technische Universität Berlin (TU) or even at the University of Potsdam. However, you must make sure that you still complete courses at the FU, because if you wish an FU transcript at the end of your stay, this is only issued if you have also completed FU courses. If only HU courses are completed, no ToR can be issued.
