Special features regarding the international orientationBased on a comparison of universities, a relatively large number of undergraduate students participate in the annual Erasmus exchange every year (about 20-30 students), although a stay abroad is not compulsory. The proportion of students who complete a work placement abroad is also comparatively high. In the Master of International Relations, about two-thirds of the students come from abroad. At the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS), a large proportion of doctoral students (>45%) come from abroad.
