Dear prospective students,

you are now faced with an important decision which will influence your professional careersignificantly. This is a stage when many questions arise: Should I study at all? If yes, which study course is the right one and where can I study this study course? To whom should I turn if I want to go abroad or have an internship semester? And where is the beach? We would like to accompany you along this decision making process and provide you valuable tips and contacts concerning the study, the study course and the city of Bremerhaven.

As "the university by the sea" University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven has a maritime profile which can be traced back to an education tradition with over one hundred years' history. The maritime characteristic is reflected especially in the close cooperation with the industry in the field of teaching and research. We are proud that we are distinguished by an application-oriented and practice-oriented education. Within the framework of the contest of "Excellent Teaching" which was launched by Culture Minister Conference and Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany (Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft), it was confirmed in 2009 that with our concept to strengthen the teaching at the university "GUUGLE - Gut und gerne Lernen und Lehren" which means to learn and teach gladly and well, we could convince the international jury and bring an important award to Bremerhaven. These further developed activities are so successful that it was decided in 2011 that they are supported by the Federal Ministry of Research and Sciences for 4 more years with approximate 2 million Euros. The concept of "Keine Qual" (integrated and sustainable development concept for increased quality in learning and teaching at the Hochschule Bremerhaven ) is built similarly to GUUGLE and ensures outstanding teaching. The teaching quality is high; it is no wonder that our graduates usually can find attractive jobs within a short time.

Our students can benefit from the knowledge of our graduates by using an alumni network. Thereby, intensive exchange between current requirements of the economy on the study content and softskills of the students can always take place.

You can benefit from the experiences of 3 000 currently enrolled students. Just talk to our students on campus! There are lots of occasions: Open Day, Cutter racing, University Party or simply a spontaneous visit. In order to gain the first information about the daily life of students and get insights into it, you can turn to our Contact Centre School-University at anytime. Especially through the concept "To start early - experimental study for pupils" which has been awarded by the Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany (Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft), you can have the unique chance to have a close look in the classrooms and laboratories in order to feel how it is like to be a student even before you are enrolled.
