Housing services

The ISA Office offers its support when you are looking for a flat or a room. From experience we can say that the housing market is especially tense at the beginning of each semester.

Student Life

Campus life

The historic building, standing under monument protection, is situated in an ideal location – not only because the bus and tram station (“Hochschule Bremen“) is directly in front of the building, but also because it is just a short walk away from the Neustadtswall campus with all central buildings including the canteen of the Bremen University of Applied Sciences. In fact, the M building, which contains the university’s library, is located immediately opposite the new IGC campus in Langemarckstraße.

Student clubs

ISA is the International Students Association hired by Hochschule Bremen and is responsible for taking full care of the international students enrolled in different Master programs.


As a Graduate School of a German State University they regularly have the curricula accredited by an external accreditation agency (ZEvA, AQAS) which are part of the European Network of Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA). The University of North Carolina, Wilmington is an accredited member of AACSB International.

Student Reviews

Good environment and international experience
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really liked the international atmosphere of the IGC Campus and how it change to a full virtual course with not so many difficulties at the pandemic. Maybe the subjects’ content should have been taught in a more deeper way as it is a Master course.
