Introduction of the Degree Courses

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.



Introduction to the Study of Teaching Professions

In order to be able to study to become a teacher in Germany, you would need to prove German C1 - so all events regarding our teacher education are held in German.


Events for Students of All Subjects

Here you will find events that provide information on various topics and facilities, such as campus tours or information on studying abroad. Even though the events are often only offered in German, you are welcome to participate. For many events basic language skills are sufficient.
