Welcome to Bremen!

A warm welcome from the International Team of the HSB Hochschule Bremen—City University of Applied Sciences.

Young, cosmopolitan, inspiring—located in the heart of Bremen, HSB attracts almost 9,000 students not only from the region and nationwide, but worldwide, amongst them more than 300 exchange students from our partner universities per year. We hope you will enjoy your stay at our international campus!

Studying during the Corona Pandemic

Due to the Corona Pandemic, life at universities and thereby exchange mobilities have changed. After previously providing most classes online, we want to offer more in-person teaching again. We at HSB are committed to doing everything possible, under the current circumstances, in the coming spring/summer semester.

The pandemic isn't over yet, so we can't promise you a "normal" semester at this point. However, there will be significantly more in-person offerings, which will, in some cases, replace online formats or complement them in a meaningful way. We therefore recommend that you plan for in-person attendance at the university.

We are very happy that you have decided to spend your exchange semester at HSB and want to help you to enjoy your stay (either virtually or in person).

Corona regulations at HSB

Living in Bremen

With its 544,000 inhabitants, including 31,000 students studying at one of the six universities, Bremen could not be more multifaceted: the city and rural suburbia lie right next to each other.

There is a very vibrant student scene, but you will not get lost in overcrowded streets. The river Weser is on your doorstep, each district is full of delightful cafés and plenty of cultural activities are going on—a city that combines green surroundings with a modern lifestyle.
