Within the context of the Bologna Process, the University of Bremen was quick to implement a two-cycle structure of studies. This has necessitated the introduction of stronger measures of quality assurance in respect of teaching and programs of study. Here, the University is able to draw on its long years of experience of cross-university evaluation procedures in the Consortium of Universities in Northern Germany. For example, since 1995 the consortium members have had all the “major” disciplines externally evaluated in a step-by-step process and entered into target agreements on corresponding quality developments.
The University of Bremen is committed to a continual process of improvement and development of the quality of teaching and studies. The primary objective is to offer its students a high level of career-oriented studies that can be completed within an expedient time. All this calls for study programs that are well organized and accordant counseling and support for students as well as for the teaching staff.
