International students

The University of Bremen was founded in 1971. It is home to around 19,500 students, with 13% of the student population, some 2,500 students, coming from over 110 non-German countries. The university offers courses across 12 faculties.

More about the University of Bremen

The University of Bremen is considered one of the best research universities in Germany. Across the 12 faculties are six high-profile interdisciplinary focus areas including Social Conflicts of Modern Welfare States, Oceans & Global Climate and Equity in Healthcare. In cooperation with local partners and institutes, it forms the leading research center in Northwest Germany.

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.
