International IGC Consultancies

Once you've made the decision to study in Bremen and you know which course you want to undertake, you can enroll directly with our institution. If, however, you need more help with the process you can use our network of education agents. An agent will be able to tell you about studying and living in Bremen/Germany and assist with enrolment forms and visa applications.

The services of our consultancies are free of charge. Please see the following list of our worldwide service partners.



During your stay abroad you will spend a lot of time studying at the International Graduate Center. Nevertheless, we will try to make your stay here as comfortable and exciting as possible. We organize events and trips, which include nice get-together events, sightseeing tours through Bremen, visiting the famous Becks Brewery, a harbor tour and a trip to Berlin.

Arrangement of Flats

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.

Therefore we recommend to start with the accommodation matter as soon as possible. After having received the admission letter, the ISA will support you with information and contact details of several private and commercial landlords in Bremen. The cost for a single student room in a shared flat is approx. 300 - 380 Euro including all additional costs like water, heating, and electricity. Single appartments are starting up at roughly 450 - 750 Euro. Feel free to ask for more information!
