Orientation Week

During the orientation week, the courses of study at the University of Bremen offer introductory events on topics such as the degree curriculum and the timetable. Other events, e.g. campus rallies or pub evenings to get to know each other complete the professional program. In addition, many courses of study offer preliminary courses to help students get started.

We have compiled all events for you and sorted them by subject so that you can make a plan for the orientation week in advance.

Please note that most of our degree courses and events are held in German. All activities that take place in English will be titled accordingly.

Especially at the beginning of your studies, you may feel insecure and there are still many unanswered questions.
