    We provide you with general information about the courses offered and the organization of your stay at the Department 2 Biology/ Chemistry of the University of Bremen.

The procedure

How to proceed - step by step

For choices of courses and Learning Agreement contact us well in advance, best right in the beginning of planning your ERASMUS exchange.

We help you to clarify language, availability, possible overlaps and reconditions for the courses of your choice and we assist in compiling a study plan for your stay with us.

For any examinations during your stay with us here, online registration for the exams is not possible.

Please register for all single examinations

via email

The lecturer is asked to send the result of your examination to the ERASMUS coordinator erasmusfb2protect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de.

All your examination results will be documented in your transcript of records and send to your home ERASMUS Coordinator.

Study Bachelor Biology in German

Choice of courses

  • Courses in our Bachelor of Biology are mainly taught in German language.
  • You can choose almost all courses. Only some of them are not open for exchange students or require specific prerequisites.
  • Courses from the first 4 semesters do not overlap.
  • Courses of different „profiles“ in study semester 5 and 6 (PM2 and PM3) could well overlap, so a choice from different profiles is hardly possible.

We will sort it out together

If you would like to combine courses from different semesters or profiles, please write to erasmusfbprotect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de.

We will clarify requirements and overlaps together.

Study Bachelor Biology in English – limited capacity

Choice of courses

  • Master students and Bachelor students of specialized Bachelor programs can choose courses of our Master programs (Marine Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Ecology).
  • By individual application selected courses from MSc Neurosciences can also be studied.
  • A combination of Master and Bachelor courses is hardly possible because of overlaps.

Contact us for your choice

In the Summer semester a combination of courses from MSc Marine Biology, MSc Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and MSc Ecology can be chosen (erasmusfb2protect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de).
