Interdisciplinarity has characterized the University of Bremen since its founding in 1971. The 12 faculties are closely connected in teaching and research thanks to their interdisciplinary cooperations. You have 526 combination possibilities for a subject-oriented two-subject degree and have the chance to go the extra mile. Take a close look at what we offer!
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.
The University of Bremen has determined six high-profile areas of research. In detail: “Marine, Polar, and Climate Research”, “Social Change, Social Policy, and the State”, “Materials Sciences and Technologies”, “Minds, Media, Machines”, “Logistics”, and “Health Sciences”. In said areas, scientists work together on the issues of the future. Sound interesting? We think so too!
Inclusive Not Exclusive
If you have a physical or psychological, visible or invisible impairment, take a look at the diverse support offered. There are consultation facilities, orientation aid on campus, a support room for students with visual impairments, and much more. You can also always go to the Contact and Information Office for Students with Disabilities or Chronic Illnesses (KIS) or the kivi student initiative.
Internationality can be found in all areas of the University of Bremen. A part of this is also the many chances for students to study abroad. You want to study abroad and gain new experiences? For example, this can be done with the EU ERASMUS program within Europe, with a global exchange program outside of Europe, or via a direct application to the university of your choice worldwide.
With the semester ticket you can travel all the way to the North and Baltic Seas and to many big and small towns, for example Hamburg, Lübeck, Hanover, or Münster.
Theater for Free
You can learn Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Kurdish, Latin, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Turkish, and Sign Language at the Foreign Languages Centre Bremen.
Digitalization has not only been a central topic at the University of Bremen since the corona pandemic. The summer semester is currently being held virtually and digital teaching and learning are becoming a fixed part of the University of Bremen. Regular face-to-face teaching can only profit from this in the future!
Doing Sport Together
The Hochschulsport e.V. association offers over 500 courses per semester. Between classics, such as football, climbing, or yoga, those who love exotic sports will find something. For example, hula hoop, parkours, disco fox, aero wheel, futsal, or quidditch.
Time at the Lake
Bremen’s largest quarry lake is directly next to the campus. Alongside beaches, sunbathing areas, and barbeque areas, there is a small kiosk that sells snacks and cold drinks. In the summer, many students meet here to surf, swim, or barbeque.
Black Light Sports Nights
The „Black Light Sports Nights” is a football and dodgeball championship under – as the name gives away – black light and which has become a fixture in the university calendar.
Each year, the event is organized by business studies students with a sports economics orientation in the frame of a practical project. The event is supported by many sponsors.
No problem. There is a small bicycle workshop on campus where you can fix it either with or without help.
