In the 50th year of the University of Bremen’s history, the traditional OPEN CAMPUS will take place digitally for the first time as OPEN CAMPUS WEEK. For five days, faculties, institutes, and other university institutions want to show off their talents under the motto “OPEN WORLDS – SHARE KNOWLEDGE.” You can look forward to interesting theme days and an interactive map that will make a digital campus visit possible. Thanks to exciting formats, such as digital tours and talks and virtual marquee visits, you can gain an insight into the different areas of the University of Bremen.
What, when, how, where? Anyone who has ever been to OPEN CAMPUS knows that a little sense of direction does no harm in the jungle of events. Especially when the traditional happening that displays the university’s diversity is to take place over the course of a whole week. A little tip: Most of the events will take place on Friday, June 11. But there will still be a lot going on in the days beforehand. Every day from Monday to Thursday is dedicated to one topic:
- Monday: Start a business? No problem! From university to a start-up business
- Tuesday: Your career perspectives – degree, vocational training, job
- Wednesday: Campus international – we stay connected!
- Thursday: Active uni – sport, nutrition, and health
Expert Tips and First-Hand Reports
The exact theme day schedule can be found on the website. Many institutes and initiatives from the university and surrounding fields are involved in accordance with the corresponding theme day. For example, the entrepreneurship network BRIDGE and various start-ups will provide information on business start-ups. On the career perspectives theme day, potential employers from the Technology Park, amongst others, will present current job openings. The university’s academic advising will also be available.
Wednesday will continue with exciting events: Students will talk about their time spent abroad and there will be many tips on the topic. On Thursday, the occupational health management team from the university and various health insurance providers will offer mental training sessions and much more.
