Hochschule Bremen & International Graduate Center
Hochschule Bremen is the main university campus on which the International Graduate Center is both located and linked. Hochschule Bremen is referred to as a university of applied sciences and thus specializes in training students to apply practical skills to the interpretation of academic knowledge they have acquired throughout their studies – thus, it utilizes both an intellectual and a tactile approach to holistic learning. The International Graduate Center is an integral part of this academic tradition and specifically focuses on international and intercultural learning as an important additional strategy to forming a global future workforce.
While the educational opportunities at IGC and Hochschule Bremen are top notch, the city of Bremen is also a great attraction in itself. With a long history steeped in Hanseatic traditions, Bremen offers visitors and residents a large array of sites and activities to enjoy. Visiting the historic Town Hall and the famous Roland Statue just in front already provides you the opportunity to experience and enjoy to meaningful UNESCO World Heritage sites, before you even start exploring the rest of the city center. Just steps from these important sites are charming little areas like Schnoor (Bremen’s oldest district), Böttcherstrasse, and Viertel to enjoy the best options in enjoyable dining, shopping, entertainment, and other city activities. From little cafes and bars to local vendors or international brands for shopping, you can enjoy all the best of city living on a small, manageable scale in the city of Bremen.
Said Amin Torres, Mexico
The IBSA program at the Hochschule Bremen for me was such an enriching experience on the professional side and also on the personal one. For me coming from a very different country like Mexico made me value important aspects on the field of logistics and also on how to live as a society. Germany and Bremen will always have a piece of my heart, I met amazing people over there and built the best memories of my life.
