Applying for Studies

Bachelor's & Law

Before you can be registered in a bachelor's degree program, including law (leading to the first state examination), you have to submit your application online. We'll explain you what you need to consider - if you are an EU-Citizen, check our application page.
Attention: If you are an international student (non-EU) please check our pages for international students.

If you are interested in attending certain courses without being registered as a student of the university, you may be interested in enrolling as an auditing student.



A master's degree program serves to deepen or expand the specialist scientific qualification acquired with the Bachelor's degree. Therefore, a bachelor's level degree is always required for admission to the master's program. All master's programs at the University of Bremen can be found in our study programs website, and general information on master's degree applications and the admission process can be found on our master's degree info page.
