Continuing Your Education

Life-Long Learning

A university's role in education does not end with the completion of a bachelor's or master's degree. It is important to keep learning throughout life. Therefore, the University of Bremen offers various opportunities for continuing education. These include part-time study programs for professionals, advanced training for job-seeking university graduates, student returnees, and studies for senior citizens.

Studies for Senior Citizens

Education Can Energize You – At Any Age

Learning is fun, keeps you fit, and encourages social contact. Have you always been interested in philosophy? Would you have liked to study Art History but actually worked for a bank? Senior studies offer you the opportunity to build on your long-held wishes. What counts now is only what you are really interested in.



Semester Program

Every semester, you can have the opportunity to attend selected courses at the university. In addition, the courses offered by the Academy for Continuing Education – especially on popular topics and exclusively for course students – complete the program. More information in German.


Lecture Program

There's no lecture-free semester break in senior studies.

In the spring and the fall, you can explore interesting topics through our series of lecture and daily seminars – all compactly and professionally delivered. More information in German.
