The University of Bremen is committed to multilingualism: In 2017 it was one of the first universities in Germany to publish a language policy which makes recommendations for the use of language in science and everyday University life. Our students acquire the language skills they need for careers on the German as well as the international job market. The University encourages and actively supports all its members to learn new languages, to make use of their native language in everyday working life, and to help breathe life into multilingualism on the campus.
