Students of a Partner University

Students of a Partner University

Students from our partner universities apply via their home university (usually at the International Office) for an exchange place at the University of Bremen. Their home university passes on the nomination to the coordinators of the University of Bremen.

After the nomination, all guest students will receive an e-mail with all relevant information on the necessary registration and the first steps to planning their stay in Bremen (accommodation, visa, etc.).

A PDF document with details about the study visit with information about the course and examination system can be found here.

General information on studying and living in Bremen can be found on the pages of the central International Office of the University. There you will also find information about registration and our offers for visiting students.

At the beginning of each semester, visiting students are invited to a welcome event hosted by the Office of Practice and International Affairs of the faculty, usually during the orientation weeks. This event is very important because all important information about studying in Bremen is communicated here.

During the three orientation weeks, the central International Office offers a variety of interesting events to get to know the university, campus life and the city of Bremen. There is also the option of taking an intensive German language course. Registration for the orientation weeks is not necessary, the German Intensive Course is organized by the Goethe Institute and requires prior registration. The attendance at these introductory weeks is advised, as the entry into the study in Bremen is made considerably easier. The program for this is available via this link.

We encourage our guest students to study a full semester workload (30 ECTS) at our university. In principle, they will be able to use the entire range of courses offered by the University of Bremen, but we ask for at least 18 ECTS of courses at the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics.

The academic calendar shows the lectures and any holidays. Exam times are always three weeks after the end of lectures at the Department of Economics. In the first week of the exam period there are regular repeat examinations of the previous semester.

The nominees are accompanied by the Office for Practice and International Affairs through the application process and are looked after in all matters before the start of the studies, during their studies and until they obtain their Master's degree.
