The LIFE Module Study for Working People

LIFE stands for innovative, flexible and successful learning. With LIFE you can take part in selected modules taken from the various University of Bremen study programs, take examinations, and earn credit points. LIFE is aimed at working people, jobseekers and returnees. If you would like to keep up to date with the latest research in your field, you can take individual modules that suit your professional work priorities. If you would like to reorient your career or deepen your skills in a certain field, LIFE certificate programs combine modules into a qualification profile.

The LIFE innovative module study is currently still in its test phase, and special rules apply.

LIFE studies are offered in the following fields:

>> Computer Science and Digital Media
>> Energy systems
>> Health and Nursing Sciences
>> Aeronautical Engineering (in planning)

LIFE has been developed as part of a BMBF funded project called konstruktiv. The future aim is to align studies and further education programs at the University of Bremen both educationally and organizationally.

To achieve this goal, the project aims to:

  • Develop flexible curricula based on modules
  • Accompany and support individuals actively in the educational process
  • Closely interweave education and professional practice
  • Open up the University to new target groups.
