International Partners

[Translate to English:] Duke University

The University of Bremen is networked worldwide and cooperates in one form or another with several hundred partner universities. Such cooperation includes partnerships on institutional level as well as departmental level, or even collaboration between individual academics.

With a few selected institutions, our so-called strategic partners, there is especially intensive and diverse cooperation, often over the longer term.

In their variety and diversity, all these types of cooperation are valuable to us and enhance our worldwide network – the foundation for our success.

Strategic partnerships

Our strategic partner universities are characterized by extensive contacts and cooperation in research and teaching in several subjects, as well as their comparability in terms of size, objectives and resources. There is a mutual agreement to sustainably develop the partnership together.



The University of Bremen is a founding member of the Young European Research Universities Network - YERUN. Eighteen young and research-strong universities have joined forces in this network with the aim of intensifying their cooperation and jointly representing the voice of young universities at the European level.


The University of Bremen boasts around 300 Erasmus partner universities in Europe. More than 650 agreements on departmental level benefit students, lecturers and staff mobility. Moreover, the University of Bremen acts as coordinator for a number of Erasmus cooperation projects. The University of Bremen also cooperates with a small number of partner universities outside Europe via the Erasmus-International Dimension program.

University partnerships worldwide

Our partnership network encompasses several hundred universities, both within and outside Europe. These include cooperation agreements at institutional level as well as numerous individual contracts and agreements for Student exchange.
