Language Requirement:

Hochschule Bremen is a bilingual school offering courses in both English and German.

A one-week intensive course is offered to exchange students from partner schools at the beginning of each semester, as is a complementary German course alongside your studies – offered in two to four semester week hours. There are courses of all levels, from Basic 1 (A1) to Advanced (C1).

Exchange students must take an online German test before the beginning of the semester in order to register for German courses. The courses are taught by the Center for Teaching and Learning (Zentrum für Lehren und Lernen ZLL). Students from partner universities should register directly through ZLL.

International exchange students intending to take classes/modules taught in English will need to provide evidence that they have sufficient competence in English as part of their application. Sufficient proficiency in English can be proven by supplying internationally accepted test scores, certificates, or other evidence of adequate language competence.

Tuition & Academic Fees:

Students will pay their regular Niagara College Tuition. Students are not required to pay the tuition of HSB. The only ‘additional’ academic expenses will be classroom materials such as textbooks.

Accommodations:

The HSB International Office offers assistance to exchange students searching for accommodation in Bremen. For this purpose, the accommodation database “into rooms” has been created, which is exclusively accessible to exchange students HSB. Since the situation on the residential market is pretty difficult, we strongly recommend making use of this service.

If you indicate in your application that you wish to get the assistance of the International Office in finding accommodation in Bremen, you will receive login data to access the accommodation database, which provides you with good accommodation offers at fair prices.

Cost of Living:

Students should budget 760 Euro per month for cost of living and 3800 Euro for a five month exchange, not including flight. This estimate could increase/decrease significantly depending on student lifestyle.

One Time Payment Estimated Cost (in Euro)
Visa 100
Study Material/Books 35
City and Regional Transportation 285

 

Monthly Payments Estimated Cost (in Euro)
Accommodation 300 – 350
Food & Drink 200 – 300

Visa:

Students from EU countries do not require a visa. All non-EU citizens should check with the German Federal Foreign Office, to see if they are subject to the visa requirement.

Please keep in mind that there are different types of visas. If you participate in a short program (e.g. summer university), a “Schengen visa” is sufficient with which you may travel up to 90 days within the Schengen-associated countries. This visa cannot be extended, you have to leave the country after 90 days. Therefore, you should apply for a “national visa” if you stay for a semester or longer.

For the visa and also for the residence permit in Germany you are required to present proof of financial resources. You are expected to demonstrate funds of at least 735 euros per month (appox. 8,800 euros for one year). Several German Embassies/Consulates require the visa applicants to open a blocked account with a German bank.

For your visa application you will also need proof of sufficient health insurance.

For students from China, their visa applications must be reviewed by the Academic Evaluation Center (APS) in China.
