Counseling centers

Moving to another country alone or with your family and starting a new job in a foreign workplace is exciting, but it can also bring a lot of challenges.
For challenges that you cannot or do not want to deal with alone, there are two central contact points at the University of Bremen:

Psychological Counselling of the Studierendenwerk (PBS)

Here you will receive clarifying talks, counselling and therapeutic support for both study-related and personal questions.
Counselling is available free of charge at any time. All staff members are bound by professional secrecy.
Counselling in English is possible. There is currently a waiting period of several weeks for an initial consultation. For further information or to make an appointment, please contact the secretariat.

In-House Social Counseling Service

The In-House Social Counseling Service within the University of Bremen is providing help to all employees at the university who have problems at work, private problems or health related problems. The counselling service is free of charge and is fully confidential. Please contact Kassandra Ruhm for more information.


The ADE (Arbeitsstelle gegen Diskriminierung und Gewalt) provides counselling on all forms of discrimination (e.g. racism, trans* and homophobia, anti-Semitism, classism, rejectionism, sexism, ...), on all forms of conflicts and on violence. Counselling is confidential and free of charge.
In addition to counselling, further training and information events on the main topics are also offered.
You can find more information here.

Scholarship Programs

A stay in another country or city can be very expensive. A good possibility to finance such a stay are scholarships. Here you can find our overview. Under this point you can also find funding opportunities for refugee or at-risk researchers.  


EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is a unique pan-European initiative delivering information and support services to professional researchers.

EURAXESS helps you in every possible area. It offers information about living and working in Germany, about the possibilities to go abroad and to return. On a search platform you can look for suitable job offers and scholarships all over Europe.
By creating a profile, you have the opportunity to network worldwide and get offers that fit exactly to the current career level and your own research area. Companies and other members also have the opportunity to search direct for you and, based on the data stored in your profile, to find out whether cooperation would be an option.

We would be happy to assist you in creating a profil!
