Are you a lateral entrance student, university transfer student or a subject changer?
University transfer students are students from other universities who are enrolled there in the same subject with the same degree for which they are applying at the University of Bremen. University transfer students cannot apply for the 1st semester, the number of semesters is continued. Admission as an advanced student is only possible according to the courses offered, which means that advanced students can only be enrolled if the Bachelor's degree course is offered in the corresponding semester.
Subject changers are students of the University of Bremen or other universities who wish to change a subject. A change of subject usually takes place in the 1st semester of the winter semester.
The lateral entry in the course of study refers to the change from one study to another, whereby a placement in a higher semester than the first semester is possible due to the already acquired study credits. Lateral entrants are therefore students at Bremen University or other universities who apply for a higher semester in a related subject. A prerequisite for application is a creditable study performance of at least 1 semester from their previous studies.
