Apply now for the Master in British Studies

Applications accepted until 30 April 2010

The Centre for British Studies at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin welcomes applications for its acclaimed interdisciplinary Master in British Studies (M.B.S.) programme. The M.B.S. course has been running for ten years. It starts every year in October and is open to graduates from any academic subject. Applicants need to have a good first degree in any subject and a very good knowledge of English.

On the M.B.S. course, students from different nations and with different academic backgrounds study British history, culture and literature, as well as law, politics, business and economy. Following an introductory semester, students in their second semester may choose between two options, 'Economy, Law, Politics' and 'Culture, Media and Cultural Management'. The two semesters in Berlin are followed by an internship with a company, public institution or other suitable organisation within the United Kingdom (subject to UK visa requirements for non-EU nationals). The Centre for British Studies helps students to arrange their internship and has a large number of partners in the UK. During the last part of the programme, students complete a Master Thesis.

Applications should be made using our application form and then sent to:

Prof. Dr. Gerhard Dannemann
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Mohrenstraße 60
10117 Berlin

The teaching staff consists of academics and practitioners from Germany and the United Kingdom. All classes are conducted in English. The M.B.S. was reaccredited in 2008 with excellent results. The Centre's graduates have turned out to be flexible, success-oriented, young adults who combine academic and business skills with a high level of intercultural competence.

The Centre for British Studies does not charge tuition fees.
