HERE Studies

HERE Studies is a pre-study course requisite for enrollment as a regular student at a university in Bremen or Bremerhaven. This program is for prospective students who already possess residence permits as displaced persons. They learn German and foundation knowledge to levels that enable them to take up regular university studies in the Federal State of Bremen.

You will find more information HERE Studies on the following pages.


IN-Touch is a program for displaced academics. Regardless of their residence status, as guests of a university, In-Touch enables them to attend courses and lectures so they can stay in touch with academia and get to know how things are at a German university.

No tuition fees are attached to this program.
