The international office offers extensive assistance and support for international students ("incoming-students") who want to study at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven.
The international students will receive helpful information from the International Office even before their arrival in Bremerhaven, which ensures a good start at the university. At the university the incomings are supported intensively by other international students who have already studied several semesters at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven and work as scholarship holders for international office - incoming students.
The international students are fully helped with the clearing of formalities, finding accommodation and other problems concerning living and studying in Bremerhaven. Moreover, there are joint excursions, events and parties which help them to settle down in Bremerhaven and in the university.
Useful information for international students are available on the homepage of "International Office" of the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven as well as on the website of the informationportal www.hist-bremen.de which was initiated in cooperation with universities in the state of Bremen and lots of other promoters.
Further assistance for the international students is providedby the "Buddy Programme". The buddies are students at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven, and most of them have already finished semester abroad and are now helping incomings with the orientation.
"StuKa International" has been established as a meeting point which takes place every first Tuesday of the month in the Student Cafe in Building K. This makes it easier for international students to get to know eachother and provides the possibility to establish contacts with other international students and German students.
