Guest Lecturer Program

Bringing the World to Bremen

The "Guest Lecturer Program" enables academicians abroad to come to Bremen on a limited teaching stay, thus giving them an opportunity to build their own research network. The goal of the initiative is to provide students who are unable to go abroad to experience international learning at the home university and gather substantial intercultural competence that they would otherwise only be able to obtain by studying abroad.


The current call for academic year 2016/17.

Application deadline is 15 October, 2016.

Please send us your application including a CV and publication list of the guest lecturer as well as a statement of the estimated costs (including offers from travel agents/hotels where available).
