Support with the Timetable and Course of Studies
For questions regarding study planning and examination regulations, students can contact the respective study centers. As a rule, the academic advising is carried out by university lecturers of the degree program. They advise on questions about study content related to the structure of the study program, the design of the study program, and the possible focus of the study program.
The respective advisors can also be found in the study database in the program descriptions under "Contact" (at first, you have to search the respective degree program). The advisor can also advise you on questions regarding the recognition of academic achievements. The examination board decides on the recognition.
First Support of Students from Higher Semesters
Students who have already studied at the University of Bremen for a few semesters know many problems and practical solutions and can help with difficulties. Freshmen can get to know the "old" students during the orientation week. Students in higher semesters are partly organized in the student body, StugA for short, and can serve as first contact persons for questions about the study process and problems of the study program. In the "Stugen-Wiki" you can find an overview of the "Stugen" at the University of Bremen.
However, a certain amount of caution should be exercised with regard to much of the information you receive at the university. There are always changes in the study program, examination regulations are rewritten, teaching staff members who were there yesterday are suddenly replaced by others.
