ECTS course certificate

If the home university requires a certificate for the courses taken at the University of Bremen international exchange students should prepare an ECTS course certificate for each course.
The ECTS course certificates can be found here.
Fill out one form for each course taken and get it signed and sealed by the lecturer/professor of each course at the end of the semester. Without the signature and stamp/seal from the faculty, the forms are not valid.

Erasmus students should then hand the ECTS course certificates to their Departmental Erasmus coordinator [PDF] (120 KB) who will prepare your Transcript of Records (see below).

 

 

Transcript of Records form

Transcript of Records

Before their departure, Erasmus exchange students should get their Transcript of Records.
The document can be generated on Mobility Online after uploading the Learning Agreement and the ECTS course certificates, or it will be prepared by the Erasmus Coordinators.

Further information about the Transcript of Records and how to create it will be sent via email to all ERASMUS exchange students a few weeks before the end of the lecture period.

International exchange students from other programmes should contact their home university or their faculty / cooperation coordinator if they need a Transcript of Records (forms are available here).

Extension of Stay

If students want to expand their stay at the University of Bremen, they need to:

  1. Contact the exchange coordinator at their home university
  2. Contact the exchange student coordinator at the University of Bremen (ERASMUS [PDF] (120 KB) / other)
  3. If both universities accept the extension: contact the International Office (incoming@uni-bremen.de)

De-registration

Before leaving Bremen exchange students have to de-register at a municipal office in Bremen. There is a municipal office on campus (Bremen Service University BSU).

Required documents for the deregistration:

- signed "Abmeldeformular" [PDF] (171 KB)
- Copy of passport or ID

If students do not need a stamped proof of their deregistration, it is not necessary to appear at the office in person. It is sufficient to leave the documents in the post box or send someone else to do it.
