Student Life in Berlin
The third and final year of the Forward expedition takes place in Berlin, the European Union’s most populous city. With incredible architecture and extensive green areas full of parks, gardens, canals, and lakes near the city centre, the German capital is perfect for enjoying sunny days.
Berlin is also famous for its many museums such as the Dahlem Museums, the Egyptian Museum, and the Berlin Cultural Forum, home of the New National Gallery. The city is also renowned for its technology industries, being home to some of the world’s largest and best-known companies.
The Student Residence – The Fizz
Our students will live together in The Fizz residence – an innovative residence for international students located in the artistic Kreuzberg district – only 15 minutes by bike from the Brandenburg Gate and about 10 minutes from Alexanderplatz.
The Fizz is a stand-out student community with stylishly designed and comfortable apartments that are a base from which to enjoy the buzz of big cities whilst on downtime from studies.

Student life, activities, sports and more
Berlin has a world-famous nightlife that attracts around three million people annually but beyond that it’s a great city for galleries and museums, to go for walks in the parks, or just to explore by bike or the extensive public transport system.
Also, The Fizz organises many activities for its residents. From talks and yoga classes to themed cooking or movie night, our Berlin campus will be more than just a place to live and study.
