New exchange agreement between UdeM and the University of Bremen (Germany)

On April 12th 2011, the University of Bremen in Germany and the Université de Montréal signed an agreement to facilitate students and professors' mobility between the two institutions.

With 250 professors and 17,000 students, the University of Bremen is a mid-sized university offering a large spectrum of subjects; 100 different study programs organized in 30 academic disciplines. The University was quick to introduce the new structure of Bachelor and Master studies and was awarded the title “Bologna University” by the Standing Conference of the Länder Ministers of Education.

The University of Bremen was founded in 1971. In the course of its relatively short history it has developed into the science center of North West Germany. When it was founded it broke new ground in many ways, earning the label “Bremen Model”. Some of these breakthroughs have now become standard features of modern universities. For instance: interdisciplinarity, research-based learning in projects, and social commitment.
