Kunst auf dem Campus

We will go on a treasure hunt around the university campus and discover some hidden artworks and special features! For the extra fast searchers, there will be something to win. We start on Friday, 24 March 2023 at 4pm. The meeting point will be announced after registration.

You can register here: https://bit.ly/3Jibw5D.

We look forward to seeing you.

kompass is a team in the International Office at the University of Bremen that carries out international and intercultural projects. Our programs and events bring foreign and German students together. We provide orientation, broaden horizons, highlight points in common, and build bridges for your professional future. Friendly, welcoming, and open for all!

International Communities

The Student Communities and project groups supported by kompass are vivid examples of the cultural diversity that shapes campus life at the University of Bremen. They help make our international students feel welcome - almost like home away from home. At the same time, they foster communication among students of other nations and thus make an important contribution towards international understanding and integration.

The Communities and project groups currently supported by kompass: Bangladesh Community Bremen, Cameroonian Community in Bremen e.V.(CCB), Chinese Student Community in Bremen, Ghanaian Students in Bremen, Guenian Students Association in Bremen, Indonesian Student Community Bremen, Islamic Student Association (IHB), ISAB (Indian Students Association Bremen), Ivorian Community (Elfenbeinküste), Nigerian Community, Pakistan Students Association at University of Bremen (PSA), Turkish students in Bremen (TSB)



Study Buddy helps international students find their way quickly around Bremen. Through the program, you can build new friendships, practice
foreign languages, and gain international contacts.
