The British Studies programme from Humboldt University Berlin has the following objectives:
- to add competence in British Studies to qualifications acquired during their first degree course
- to prepare students for positions in firms and institutions in an international context
- to promote cross-cultural understanding, communication and mobility
- to teach students interdisciplinary methods and approaches enabling them to think and work contextually
- to provide students with an understanding of British society, culture, institutions and economy in a European perspective
We are also grateful to the numerous and prestigious British organisations that have supported us by providing placements for our students. These include the House of Commons, the National Museums of Scotland, the Roald Dahl Museum, the National Trust, Pearson Plc, the European Documentation Centre Cardiff, Birmingham City Council, Cheltenham Literature Festivals, the Henry Jackson Society, Brookside Publishing Dublin, Bath Festivals and the German-British Chamber of Commerce.
