Studenten an der Uni Bremen

The university’s commitment to ‘internationalization’ can be experienced in lots of ways, thanks largely to the Kompass team who works hard to bring national and international students at Bremen closer together through intercultural events and projects. The university’s ‘Mind The Gap!’ project aims to help international students prepare for and enter the German job market.
