Exchange, mobility and recognition of qualifications

In order to facilitate and promote mobility, exchange and lateral entries, the Faculty was quick to adapt its bachelor’s programs to meet the requirements of the Lisbon Convention. The recognition of academic qualifications thus takes place in close consultation with applicants according to the “significant difference” principle.

FB2 vigorously pursues and supports student exchange programs (both for our outgoings as well as for incoming students) with partner universities in other countries and the Faculty maintains numerous ERASMUS partnerships. Mobility windows are firmly anchored in the structure of Bachelor Biology and in most of our master’s programs. The Bachelor Chemistry program plans to introduce a joint degree with ECPM in Strasbourg.

Family-friendly studies

The Faculty of Biology/Chemistry strongly supports the University’s efforts at making studies and work at the University of Bremen as compatible with family life as possible. We respect the importance of family responsibilities and the special situation, stresses and time constraints students and staff experience when coping with the issues involved. We do our best to help students in FB2 fulfill such commitments.

Fostering individual interests

FB 2 is in the course of adapting its degree courses in biology (full major and option for teacher education) to take account of individual profile building based on research-based learning. In this context, it places a special focus on fostering diversity and, commensurate with their abilities, student‘s individual interests.

Furthermore, in the third year of the Bachelor Biology program, students also have the opportunity to build profile and pursue their individual interests. In the third year of the Bachelor Chemistry program, it is planned to introduce a specialty in Biochemistry.

Supported by Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt [German foundation for the environment], the area of chemistry didactics is introducing an innovative school-lab project designed to create interest in the topic “Sustainability in Chemistry” especially on the part of adolescents and family with migration backgrounds.

Compensating for disadvantage

Groups that tend to be disadvantaged in education due to their “characteristics” include the chronically ill, foreigners, single parents or persons exhibiting two or more of such characteristics. The student advisory and counseling services are particularly active during the orientation phase. Our administration staff also receives training on the topic of diversity.
