Support for Your Degree Start

Support for Your Degree Start

The university and the start of a degree can be a little confusing for new students. But do not worry – you’re not on your own at the University of Bremen. The orientation week takes place in the fall for all freshmen. There you will find out what support there is and get to know the campus and you peers. In all faculties, the Study Centers are an important central place of contact for students so that degree planning and examination regulations can be explained, for example. Many degree courses also offer preliminary classes, seminars, tutorials, and individual consultation opportunities that make your start a little easier.

For more info, take a look at our Uni-Start portal.
