University of the Arts Bremen is an excellent environment for creative young people to grow their talents and prepare for a career in the arts. Uniting the disciplines of art and music under a single roof, we occupy a unique place in the German educational landscape.

At University of the Arts Bremen our students learn to set their own goals, follow their creative urge, cross boundaries and to successfully accomplish musical, artistic and design projects through teamwork. The University of the Arts is a medium-sized German college of the arts with approximately 900 students, 65 professors and over 200 lecturers and teachers. The University is well-equipped to offer students an outstanding education in a wide range of artistic practices, while its compact size allows students to enjoy close working relationships with their teachers in a warm, welcoming and inspirational atmosphere.


The University of the Arts Bremen offers a varied range of studies in the fields of art, design and music, which facilitates a productive and inclusive dialogue between the courses.
