Arrival in Bremen
Welcome event for all freshers of the faculty
At the very beginning of your studies in Germany we invite all freshers of our master programmes to an official welcome event!
After short introductions into the 5 international master programmes and 1 German Master in Chemistry by the programme coordinators, we will tell you some important and interesting facts about the faculty's structure, administration and culture. To get into contact with each other, the official part of the event will be followed by speed meeting, different campus tours and a jigsaw puzzle competition. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
At the end of an hopefully inspiring get-together a big world map will show the cultural diversity of our freshers who are part of a big international community in this faculty!
