Applicants without a university entrance qualification (such as a high school diploma) and who have certain professional qualifications may be admitted to trial studies. If the trial studies are successfully completed, the university entrance qualification acquired with the study course is only valid for the chosen subject or subjects and only for studies at the University of Bremen. With trial studies, therefore, a subject-specific and location-bound university entrance qualification is acquired.
What are trial studies?
Trial studies are studies “on probation”. The participants, like their fellow regular students, take part in the regular courses of the chosen degree program and have to sit for the required examinations in the subject or in the subjects. If the examinations are successful, the successful students will have proven that they are able to study the subject in question and take up regular studies in the program. The course work completed during trial studies is recognized in full for the subsequent studies.
