Default Germany: Free University of Berlin

The Free University of Berlin (FUB, German: Freie Universität Berlin) is the largest of the four universities in Berlin. Research at the university is focused on humanities and social sciences and on health and natural sciences. In October 2007, it was awarded "elite university" status by the German Science Foundation for the quality of its research through the Initiative for Excellence of the German government, which will translate into additional funding. The Times Higher Education Supplement world rankings in Arts and Humanities of 2008 place the Free University of Berlin 3rd best in Europe, and 24th in the world.
