Living in Bremen

Bremen has about 550,000 inhabitants – a mid-sized city in which one can quickly feel at home. The green lung Bürgerpark, the River Weser, the extensive cultural offerings all over town, and a vibrant pub and music scene are just a few of the reasons.

As a student, you can go everywhere by bus and train with the Semesterticket; but (almost) everything in Bremen is easily reached by bike.

Bremen's districts are colorful and diverse, urban in the bustling part of town called the Ostertor, maritime on the river Weser, iconic in the Neustadt district or in close proximity to the University in Horn-Lehe; there is something for everyone.

The Studentenwerk Bremen offers affordable housing for students. In Bremen there are also private residential homes, various housing associations, and of course there is always the private housing market.


International Studies

The internationalization of teaching and learning is one of the strategic goals pursued by the University.

The contents of teaching and learning are internationally oriented. We enable our students to gain international experience, whether by studying abroad or doing internships abroad or through non-German courses – thus preparing them ideally for international labor markets in a globalized world.

We offer internationally attractive and innovative study and doctoral programmes. We extend a warm welcome to students from all over the world and offer them a wide range of study preparation and accompanying services to help them complete their studies successfully. Guest lecturers from all over the world enrich our study programs. Discover the many possibilities!


Continuing Education

Studying besides working? The University of Bremen is the right place. We offer a variety of continuing education opportunities for your professional development – practice-related and state-of-the-art. The spectrum of offers ranges from seminars, through individual modules, up to the extra-occupational Master's program.

In addition, we also have exciting offers for seniors in a wide range of disciplines.

As a guest auditor you can attend individual courses without having to enroll as a student. All the University’s Faculties offer this possibility, so there is a wide range of courses to choose from.

The Academy for Continuing Education bundles the continuing education courses offered by the University of Bremen and, of course, also offers personal advice.
