What are the differences between a teaching bachelor’s and other bachelor's degrees? On these pages we would like to inform you in detail about the various university degrees you can obtain at the University of Bremen.
The University of Bremen has converted all its degree programs to the Bachelor / Master system. Bachelor’s and master’s are tiered degrees. After completing a bachelor's program of 6 semesters (7 semesters in exceptional cases), you will leave the University with a first professional degree. Or you go on to continue your studies in a 3- to 4-semester master's program.
Teacher training consists of three parts: the bachelor's program, the subsequent master's program, and the Referendariat- a period of practical in-school training. The Master of Education is equal to the former First State Examination. After completing the master's program, there follows an 18-month Referendariat period of practical in-school training that concludes with a second state examination.
Education in law consists of two parts: The study of law and the Referendariat period of practical training. The first state law exam is taken at the end of the 9-semester study program. The second state law exam is taken after a subsequent 24-month period of practical training.
