Non-overlapping courses

Coordinated program schedules allow completion of studies within the normal timeframe!

The University of Bremen co-ordinates programs that encompass several subjects, so that about 70% of all possible subject combinations can be studied without any overlap, allowing completion of studies within the normal timeframe. However, the University of Bremen is still unable to provide a guarantee for this, as both room and teaching capacities are limited.

With regard to planning, non-overlapping offers, the subjects coordinate their timetables and design programs.


By asking

The subject groups

Subjects are assigned to one of three subject groups. The subjects of a subject group place their courses in the same time window. A combination of two subjects from different subject groups can therefore be studied without overlap within the normal period of study. Of course, you can also choose two subjects from the same subject group. However, this may involve some overlap and extend the normal duration of studies.
